FACTS OF THE CASE

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

03

Lai Garden is considered to be a fastfood restaurant. Thus, customers would


expect them to serve the orders as
quick as they could to provide fast food
to customers.
Serving their customers orders longer
than it should be may lead to
customers dissatisfaction.

ALTERNATIVE COURSE OF

ACTION

1. Ten-minutes to serve the order


The policy that sets out the rule to
serve the customer orders in less than or
within ten minutes. This can be better
achieved if foods are pre-cooked even

customers.

3. Pre-order before reaching the counter
One way to quicken the pace of serving
the orders of the customers is to assign an
employee to get the orders before reaching
the counter. This could make the customer
feel like he is given attention by the
management. This will improve customeremployee relationship.

DECISION MAKING

05

It is important to weigh the benefits and the costs


of each course of action to make the best decision.
After considering the costs and the benefits, we
have come up with the decision that the best
alternative course of action is to hire adequate
employees to serve the needs of the customers.
It is also important to train them well and inform
them of the job qualifications necessary in doing
their job. Management should regularly evaluate
and monitor the employees job performance.

PLAN OF IMPLEMENTATION

06

Present the selected plan to the management for


approval
Recruitment and Hiring of qualified employees
Employees training
Proper dissemination of the new policy
Communicate with its subordinates and
encourage them to cooperate with the
management goal
Evaluation of the policy

CONTINGENCY PLAN

07

It is also important for management to make a


plan B in case things dont turn out as planned.
The management should have a contingency plan
that would back up the original plan especially if
things go wrong. It is necessary to have plan B so
the efficiency and effectiveness of the daily
operations would not be affected by sudden
events.

CONTINGENCY PLAN
Our proposed plan B is to assign an
employee

to

get

the

pre-orders

before

reaching the counter. The crew may get order


from customers in queue and write it down in a
piece of paper and let the customer present it to
the cashier to facilitate the getting of orders. The
customers may add additional orders if they
decide to.

CONTINGENCY PLAN

Another way is to have the management


evaluate employee performance to improve their
way of serving customers. Evaluation may be
done weekly or monthly to assess employee
performance. This could make them motivated in
doing their job.
