1. What is COO (Chief Operating Officer)?

A COO is an important position in an organization or company, often ranking at the senior level of leadership. The COO has primary responsibility for the company's daily operations and ensuring all activities are carried out smoothly and efficiently. COO duties may include operations management, production management, human resources management, project management and other activities related to organizational operations. In some cases, the COO can substitute for the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) in managing the company when the CEO is unavailable.

The COO mainly focuses on implementing the company's business plans according to the established business model, while the CEO is more concerned with the company's long-term goals and broader prospects. In other words, the CEO comes up with the plans, while the COO executes them.

For example, if a company loses market share, the CEO may propose increasing quality control to strengthen customer credibility. The COO would fulfill the CEO's role by directing the HR department to hire additional quality control staff.
