2. Within your workplace or organisation, interpret and analyse information related to the operational plan and operational performance. Use key performance indicators to describe operational performance to a fellow learner.
3. Plan and prepare a draft operational plan that can be presented to a number of stakeholders within the workplace. You may have to alter the language and format of the plan to meet the needs of the recipient. The plan should be no more than 500 words, and should include the following:
? Organisational objectives
? What the company expects of the individual or team
? Contingency plans.

5. Organise the supply of resources through the use of mathematical techniques. This will involve meeting the demands of the operational plan and analysing budgetary information. Summarise your findings over one page of A4 writing.
6. Within a workplace environment, monitor employee adherence to organisational policies and procedures. Describe your findings to a fellow learner or the instructor, and highlight how you have personally contributed to the broader goals of the work environment.
