Case Study:
Sally Ann is the new manager for a boutique patisserie. Unfortunately, the existing small team has become negative and unproductive under the previous manager. Sally Ann decided that she would observe the operation for the first few weeks, just to see the how the business operated. The team appeared to be busy, but the production was always less than required, despite food orders for the correct number. There was often conflict within the team as sometimes work was doubled up, or even not completed, as the staff really did not know what they should be doing.
As the weeks have progressed, Sally Ann has been working longer and longer hours. She really wants to be more organised in her approach and really wants the staff to take on more duties and responsibilities, but they have shown little initiative. She has asked the chef de partie to do the rostering for her, but it has been a complete disaster as there were shifts left unfilled and other staff working overtime or without a day off. Sally Ann now feels that it is just easier to do the rostering herself.
Sally Ann has decided that she has seen enough and is seeking assistance from you, a Le Cordon Bleu graduate.
Task:
Follow the instructions below to form the basis of an action plan for Sally Ann to use to begin to make a positive change to work culture in the patisserie.
1. Develop two goals towards a positive change in work culture that would be appropriate for a commercial kitchen.
2. Identify one objective linked to each goal in Question 1.
3. Describe an innovative technique that Sally Ann could use to communicate the goals and objectives from Questions 1 and 2 to her team.
4. Suggest one way for Sally Ann to professionally communicate with her team about her expectations and their roles and responsibilities.
5. Suggest one way that Sally Ann could monitor team performance to ensure organisational goals are achieved.
6. Suggest two strategies Sally Ann could use to evaluate the skills of her team members.
7. Provide 3 examples of suitable opportunities where members of Sally Ann’s team could take part in individual or professional development to contribute positively to the work culture.
8. Suggest two ways that Sally Anne can encourage her team to be innovative in their approach to achieving organisational goals and objectives.
9. Provide two examples of how Sally Anne can model high standards of performance and behaviour to her team.
