Privately Owned Restaurants

Privately Owned Restaurants
Project description
Focus of the Final Paper
In Week One, you will choose a generic organization (manufacturing plant, hospital, etc.). Assume that you are a hired consultant for this organization. You have been asked by the president of the organization to prepare a background paper on the results of your research and to make recommendations to improve group productivity in the organization.
Your research has identified the following problems:
1. Role conflicts within groups
2. Communication problems among group members
3. Lack of cohesiveness in groups with diverse members
4. Excessive intergroup conflict
***The generic organization I identified was a privately owned restaurant. The factors that I would examine in my research is the communication between the manager, waitresses, chef and other staff members, rather or not the positions were clearly defined for each employee, how well the employees get along with each other, how well the manager manages the restaurant, and lastly I would access rather or not the employees are being utilized to their maximum potential to maximize the productivity and increase the owners bottom-line.

My reason for choosing a privately owned restaurant to do my research on is that I am intrigued by the minute issues that arise and spiral out of control because the people involved don’t want to or don’t know how to address them head on and just let them fester and linger until they (the issues) eventually cause the destruction or downfall of an otherwise structurally sound business.
NOTES from my instructor to my response above…Shalonda,
Did you read my bio? I owned and operated three different theme restaurants, being in the restaurant business is one of the hardest but most rewarding businesses to be in. I wouldn’t change my business experiences, and I learned a lot; however very hard demanding work. I met many interesting people, presidents and dignitaries, throughout my travels.
I will be eagerly interested in reading your research. Below are some reference websites, to help with your research.

National Restaurant Association
American Culinary Federation
Restaurant News Magazine
