Implement the Operational Plan

Organizational Cultures

An organization culture like employees get used to on paper works than use of computer-based system is one problem with the implementation of the above operation plan.

Human Resources Management and Practices Favoritism, nepotism and being biased can affect selection of right candidate for the right post. For which the HR management practices like recruitment, selection, induction, job descriptions, use of skills matrix to evaluate employees will follow automatically if and only if good policy or guidelines are put to place.

Therefore, with the use of good policy, the unfair HR management and practices will be overcome.

Standard Operating Practices There are certain standards that need to be followed while implementing the day-to- day plan whereby setting limits to the overall performance.

External and internal consultation will be made to make adjustment, for example deadline not abled to meet can be put back on track by employing more heads with prior approval from committee.

Budget requirements of acquisition of resources First the budget will be proposed to Finance department for evaluation and comments. If the company cannot afford then the following strategies will be used:

Borrow from Bank

Sell shares

Invite Foreign Direct Investment

Review and Monitor Operational Plan

Performance Management System to evaluate team members Small organization like ours will use simple paper based performance Appraisal. The information collected on the form then will be compared set Benchmark to know how we are doing.

The respective manager will then keep record of each employees performance then corrective measures will be taken to reward achieves or correct failures.

The information like achievement, failures, training needs will be collected from each employee. Then the manager will keep copy of each completed review in the employee's personnel file and take necessary actions.

What data will you collect to monitor performance?

Number of Tourist: This business is mainly about selling large quantity stocks to retail shops, so number of new subscribers data is crucial to decide whether we are on track or not.

Experiences of Tourist: Secondly even after getting new clients it is even more important to hold customers back for which data collection like customers convenience related to delivery, credit policy, collection timetable etc.

Income-Expenditure: Data related to bills payable and receivables are one main deciding factor to evaluate efficiency and effectiveness.

Examples of underperformance and corrective measures

Couldn’t complete website work on time solution is to employee more heads to complete the task.

Time taken to purchase domain more than expected Hire or consult who can do it faster or manager can constantly monitor or coach.

Mentoring and coaching techniques to be used

By attaching new employees with old ones so that the skills are passed;

Available for constant advice from management;

By creating conducive learning environment;

Building trust at work place to each other.

Personnel whom we have to get recommendations and negotiation The approvals and recommendation can be obtained via external and internal consultation. External could be:

Different regulatory authorities like Department of Immigration, Tourism council of Nepal etc.

Banks;

Investors;

Implement Continues Improvement Making engagement in decision making process

There are many ways that we can encourage our sub-ordinates to take active role in decision-making process like:

Every employee involved in the operational plan mentioned above will be instantly given open opportunity for feedbacks and suggestions like meetings, on loopholes within working system. It is not enough to just give platform for suggestion but each employees points will be given importance, so that they will think they are taken care. The goals and objectives will be set all together with fair and open-end debates.

The end goal will be explained to each and every employee so that they know where we have to reach.

Then, the best possible channels for communication will be adopted to enhance better involvement in decision-making process.

Communication and feedback Process The communication and feedbacks this related to this basically how we collect from the employees in the decision making process. It can be formal or informal, structured or non-structured and it can be achieved by means of the following methods and process:

Face to face meeting;

Online forums;

Emails;

News Letters;

Reports;

Web-based applications;

Customer services that can be improved from continues improvement process Customer services is one area that can be improved by following continuous improvement process because past failure if taken care, can be incorporated in later stage which help build system stronger.
