Operations Strategy versus Business Strategy

Operations strategy relates to the day-to-day running of the business and is short term in nature.
The business strategy is the overall business vision looking further ahead, giving direction as to where the business wants to be say, in the next five years or so.
The operations strategy is controlled by the business strategy.

Operation versus Business Strategy

There is no clear demarcation between operation and business strategy. However the business strategy is more holistic and affects the business in long term, while the operation strategy helps company to serve its customers in a better way. Operation strategy also helps to improve the bottom line of the company.
