As we close out our 30th year of authoring Operations Management texts together, Jay and I look back on 2013 and look forward to the coming year with great excitement and appreciation. We are excited to see how well the latest editions are doing and that Principles of Operations Management (9th ed.) and Operations Management (11th ed.) are the top-selling books in the discipline. A lot of work went into these texts, with new features such as the video case studies on the Orlando Magic, major teaching enhancements in MyOMLab, and chapters on Sustainability and Supply Chain Analytics. We anticipate even more advances in the coming year as we are joined by Professor Chuck Munson at Washington State University as a 3rd coauthor. Chuck has worked closely with us for almost six years now.

But it takes more than a few authors, as hard-working as they may be, to make a successful book. Our team at Pearson has been fantastic over these three decades and we are eternally grateful. Here are just a few of the people we work with on a daily and weekly basis. They make a fantastic team!
