Question 8

Case study

Quality Stock Enterprises is a furniture manufacturer supplying indoor and outdoor furniture products at the premium end of the market. The organisation currently employs more than 600 staff. In the last 12 months sales have dropped by 25 per cent causing great alarm amongst management and staff alike.

A competitor has appeared in the market and offers similar products at lower prices. An analysis of the business identified a range of weaknesses that included too narrow a product range; existing products being aimed at the upper end of their niche market with corresponding prices; the nature of their furniture means that they need highly skilled workers who are paid premium wages.  All this has impacted on the company at the same time as a global downturn in the economy, with many customers unwilling to pay top prices. They know they need to make some changes to improve their situation.

Senior management are considering a number of options including:

  • taking manufacturing offshore
  • laying off staff across all areas of the business
  •  diversifying their product range to include middle and low-range priced goods.

This company will do anything to curtail the current decline in sales so long as the costs of the proposed changes are not excessive.

  1. Explain how you would utilise participation techniques with the employees in this organisation to explore the advantages and disadvantages of each of the options presented in the case study. Based on this approach identify the option that you believe is most viable.
  1. Explain how you would initiate continuous improvement activities related to this option. How would you communicate these initiatives to relevant stakeholders?
  1. Provide a proposal to senior management of this organisation outlining how mentoring and coaching could be used to improve current circumstances.
  1. In what ways could sustainability practices help the company reduce its costs and maintain a competitive advantage?
  1. What knowledge management systems should be utilised to capture the options suggested and to explore them more thoroughly?

Task 2

Assessment Instructions

This is an individual assessment. You will demonstrate your skills and knowledge by completing a scenario-based project. You will need to access the following BizOps Enterprises documents, policies and procedures:

  • Vision, mission and values
  • Company business plan
  • Continuous improvement procedures
  • Organisational charts
  • Sustainability environmental policy
  • Professional development policy

Complete the following tasks to facilitate this continuous improvement process. Each task should be completed in a separate document.

Subject: Continuous improvement project

The BizOps Enterprises vision, mission and values statement highlights the crux of what our business about. We have set some challenging goals and objectives in the business plan for the next five years and now it is time to implement some improvements to help us achieve these outcomes.

One of the goals in the business plan is to focus on having the right people in the organisation. One identified strategy for supporting this goal is to ‘provide the financial, physical, human and time resources to support an annual professional development program for all BizOps employees’.

Senior managers have discussed how this could be achieved and have decided that it is would be best managed through a continuous process improvement (CPI).

As the Human Resources Manager, you are the most suitable person to manage this because you are already managing professional development for the organisation.

Please refer to the list of tasks (Procedure) that senior managers wish you to complete for this project.

Regards,

Sayo Yoshida

Managing Director: Human Resources

Procedure

The document should address the following:
  2. Encourage staff to exercise initiative and participate in the decision-making processes of this CPI project as it is clearly targeting all employees.
  3. Explain what CPI means and why this method is appropriate for achieving the company business plan. You may need to refer to and use extracts from the continuous improvement procedures.
