Task 01

- Analyze the relationship between organizational goals, objectives and policies and explain their contribution to effective management at Fraser Foods.

Having decided on the Mission statement of an organization then it’s necessary to have Goals & Objectives. Goals are statements with General Intentions. To increase the Quality of their products and be more customer focused To improve customer services and also after sales services and build long-standing relationship To achieve a long term partnership Minimize the operational use of non-renewable resources Objectives are more Specific, measurable and have a defined completion date. (Ex; To increase Profit by 20% within the next 2 years)

Objectives of Fraser foods Develop a Future plan to expand the Fraser Food’s business over the next 5 years. Changing the consumer taste and preferences more towards Healthier meals Join hands with new clients and decline the dependability on Perkins Policies are Guidelines or a principle of action adopted or proposed by an organization for staff helping what needs to be done to carry out the strategy.

A key driver of the success of Fraser Foods lies in management’s focus on quality and its ability to manage the relationship with Perkins. Perkins demand very high standards and therefore the production process has to be managed to ensure that standards are maintained and hopefully exceeded. Fraser Foods uses local suppliers and has built up an excellent relationship with them.

Task 02

 - Explain the composition of the open systems theory and explain how it applies to the case study.

Open systems theory is relating that organizations are strongly influenced by their environment. Open system perspectives see organizations in two views, as hierarchical systems and as loosely coupled systems. Open systems tend to have some resemblance of clustering and levels -- multiple subsystems that specialize in certain system activities.The environment consists many organizations that exert various forces of an economic, political, or social nature. Interdependencies and connections within a subsystem tend to be tighter than between subsystems.

Understanding of inter-relationships and alignment is not only about parts and processes within the system, but also to the system and its environment – an “open systems” approach

According to the case study we see a hierarchical system in the organization in order to clarify and rectify issues. Fraser Foods has three Directors, Managing Director (David Fraser), Finance Director (Laura Bolton), Operations Director (Robin Fraser). The business has four Senior Managers — Human Resources, Production, Product Development and Purchasing. Each manager has a team(s) under them and Administrative Support.

Again if we go deep into the environment or nature Fraser Foods, we see consultants and clients are learning to more clearly recognize the various parts and processes of an organization, and, in particular, their inter-relationships and alignment. Such as…

  • Aware of their carbon footprint and try to minimise their use of non-renewable resources but they have to balance this with the need to provide its customers with a high quality product.
  • The number of deliveries to and from the factory and the amount of fuel used will impact on the environment through pollution.

Task 03

- Identify the key stakeholders in Fraser Foods and explain their interest and influence in the company.

Fraser Foods has three Directors, Managing Director (David Fraser), Finance Director (Laura Bolton), Operations Director (Robin Fraser). The business has four Senior Managers — Human Resources, Production, Product Development and Purchasing.
