Operational Plan Management

2. a. Privacy Act 1988 (Cwlth): Customer’s personal data provided at the timer of purchasing goods from the organisation is required to be kept confidential as per the regulations of this act (legislation.gov.au, 2020). This is relevant to the operational objective of “Engaging with customers through marketing, research and personalised service”

Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld): This legislative figure is relevant to the objective of the organization regarding “Supporting people to perform via training and performance management”. It is because supporting every employees of the organisation equally is required to avoid complying with the legal provisions under this Act (qld.gov.au, 2020).

Fair Work Act 2009 (Cwlth): This Legislation is also relevant to the context of the operational plan of BBQfun. It can be applied in the context of objectives such as “Building reputation for quality products and quality customer service” and “Reduce direct and indirect costs of operations”. It is because of the fact that the legislature indicates towards fair means of business at any point whatever the operational objective is (legislation.gov.au, 2020). For instance, a company may strive to achieve higher revenue in the coming years though they cannot drop the ethical means of business for generating profit.

AS ISO 15489: 2002 Records management: This is required to be maintained at all the sections of objectives due to the reason that the organisation requires to maintain its records of all the operations through following a standardised process (sa.gov.au, 2020). It will help them identify their status of operation and measures for business improvement can be taken under consideration as well.

The performance management policies of the organisation are aligned with the operational plan of the organisation. The target sales and revenue and reputation can be earned through effective performances that can be achieved through effective performance, management.

Another policy of the organisation is regarding procurement that is developed for the purpose of ensuring consistency in the resource acquisition. Additionally, the procedure for procurement is developed based on the ethical consideration of fair means of procurement and transparency. This may help the organisation to achieve high reputation. The procurement related activities are also designed in a way that may not raise risks for the organisation. This can be aligned with the operational objective of reducing direct and indirect sales (Ren et al., 2020).

The operational plan developed by the organisational experts is helpful for continuously monitoring and tracking the organisational performance towards achieving the goal of the operations. For instance, one of the goals to be achieved though following the plan is to raise organisational profile by 20%. In this context, engaging customers through extensive market research, offering personalised services will be the target to achieve. Apart from that, the operational plan has also outlined the required tasks to be done that will help achieve the operational objectives at the end. Therefore, it is supportive in following specific small targets to achieve the main objectives of the operation.

In order to develop a new operational plan the method of value based goal setting will be followed as it provides the opportunity to keep a track of the progress already made.

The method of developing an action plan will be taken under consideration for outlining the actions.

An Affinity diagram will be used for identifying the potential risks associated with the developed operational plan. It will be effective as a large number of data can be put together and group ideas can be included through conducting brainstorming.

In order to monitor performance of the employees to achieve the organisational goals aligning the same with the operational plan, monitoring techniques such as observation, talking with people, monitoring performance and turnover rate, daily performance evaluation is required to be adopted.

In order to implement the e-commerce strategy by the organisation, the resources that are required may include plant and equipments such as data server, host system, forklifts, and delivery trucks. Apart from that, promotional procedures including advertisements in various platforms will be required. Website developers are also required for developing channels to reach the customers. As e-commerce is being implemented as a new strategy of the business, the organizational staff members are also required to be provided with training for handling modern technological equipments (Leung et al., 2018). Along with this, the warehouse and the office will also be required to be modified to support the needs of the e-commerce strategy implementation.

5. Consulter: what are the required resources to be procured in order to implement the e-comnere strategic plan successfully?

Sales marketing manager: Human resource is required for successfully implement the plan developed for using e-commerce strategy. Employees from two locations are required to be approached for implementing the plan. This resource includes sales and customer service personnel that will strategically increase customer engagement. The store manager has to record all the procurement and purchases in order to manage the purchase and procurement of the raw materials and the products as well. Sales team leaders at Brisbane and Goldcoast will supervise the sales team members to conduct sales operation effectively. Online deliver truck drivers are also required for providing quality services to the customers (Leung et al., 2018).

Consulter: what are the resources required to develop the e-commerce website?
