To investigate quality </em><em>management occupations, we collected data on 1013 profiles on the LinkedIn professional </em><em>network to analyze quality-related job positions in Serbia. Findings indicate that there is a </em><em>range of non-standardized and confusing occupational titles and descriptions. In response to </em><em>these findings, we systemized gained data on workplaces in the field of quality management </em><em>and standardized occupational titles according to those descriptions. Systemized and a </em><em>standardized list of quality management occupations could be used in strategies for the </em><em>improvement of job systematization in this field by clearly defined roles, responsibilities, and </em><em>accountabilities in the workplace. Standardizing jobs in terms of a title but also a description </em><em>would reduce misunderstanding among employees, owners, managers, and decision-makers. </em></p> 2020-12-12T10:57:54+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 NOLEGEIN-Journal of Operations Research & Management Strategic Management in Indian Pharmaceutical Industry 2020-12-12T11:12:55+00:00 Ganesh Radhakrishnan <p><em>Producing pharmaceuticals, i.e., a drug is a complex process. For an Active Pharmaceutical </em><em>Ingredient (API), the manufacturer requires a reliable, supply of high quality raw materials, </em><em>technical expertise and a stable supply of electricity, gas and other utilities, plus sufficient </em><em>human resource capacity, scientists and pharmaceutical process/regulatory expertise. For </em><em>the manufacturing of quality drugs, guidelines are fixed which are mandatory for each and </em><em>every process. It is crucial that pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment complies with good </em><em>manufacturing practices. The vast majority of the manufacturing cost is in the primary </em><em>manufacturing of active ingredients, and the opportunity for smaller local manufacturers to </em><em>save costs is limited; however, India has become a lucrative destination for clinical trials for </em><em>global giants in the last few years. This study aims to analyze the Indian pharmaceutical </em><em>industry and the strategic alliances in the recent past and what drives these alliances. An </em><em>analysis of the critical capabilities needed along the value chain in the pharmaceutical </em><em>industry, and the existing capabilities of the firms and how these alliances are supposed to </em><em>bridge the capability gap, have been presented.</em></p> 2020-12-12T11:12:55+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 NOLEGEIN-Journal of Operations Research & Management A Study and Comparative Analysis on Pandemic Corona Virus in India 2020-12-12T11:24:57+00:00 Monika Sharma <p><em>The COVID-19 a highly contagious virus whose name was given by WHO on 11th February. </em><em>It is an ongoing pandemic which originated in China’s Wuhan city and has been spread in </em><em>more than 185 countries.
