Question 1
The types of business systems that support the development of effective work relationships are
Payroll business system
Personnel business system
The automated process of payroll that is done with the help of software is known as a payroll
business system. This system has been integrated with leave and attendance tracking that helps to
track the employee's leaves and attendance records. Service portals for self-service of the
employees have also been integrated so that tracking of working hours of the employees can be
done. Automatic calculation of salaries, taxes, deductions, and pay slip printing can be done
using this service portal. This helps in the development of an effective work relationship in a
business system(FAYED, 2019).
The business system deals with the storing of employee records, performance reviews of
employees, raises in salary, etc is known as a personnel business system. This system is also a
computer-based system that helps in the maintenance of the service records of employees of a
business organization. Whether an employee has been taking advantage of company policies is
also tracked with this system. This benefit helps in the development of an effective work
relationship in a business system of an organization.

Question 2
Administrative Policies such as rules and regulations of the office and the values and
expectations of the business help in supporting the development of an effective work
relationship. The policies of the company such as eligibility for health insurance help in the
assurance of employees that the organization is looking after them thus helping development by
motivation. Paid time off helps in supporting the development of an effective workplace
environment.
Customer management policy is a technology that helps in the management of all the
relationships within the company along with the management of customer interaction. The goal
of this policy is simple and effective, it helps in the improvement of business and interpersonal
relationships of the employees. This management helps in the creation of an environment where
the employees, as well as the customers, are happy. So it helps to improve profitability and lets the company stay connected to the customers thus creating an environment that promotes the
development of effective work relationships.

Question 3
(a) The process of interaction with other people or how one person interacts with other people is
commonly known as interpersonal style. The personality of oneself has an impact on the style
and behavioral traits of that person. The way of living a person or the environment of living a
person and the interaction with other people has an impact on one’s interpersonal style. The
temperament of a person is commonly known as that person's interpersonal style which can be of different categories. The four types of interpersonal styles are
Aggressive
Passive
Passive-aggressive
Assertive

(b) The behavioral traits of a person along with the tactics that the person uses for interaction
with others at a workplace effectively. The ability of an employee to work well with others, in
the world of business is commonly known as interpersonal skills in the workplace. The skill of a
person of communication with others and listening to deportment and attitudes of others are the
key relevance of interpersonal styles in a workplace.

Question 4
(a) There are three main types of communication skills present
Verbal communication
Visual Communication
Non-verbal communication
(b) Verbal communication is the way by which one can convey a meaningful or useful message
with the help of words. The different forms of verbal communication are written communication
and oral communication (Tuli and Sharma, 2019).
There are four types of verbal communication present in the business workplace which are
intrapersonal communication, interpersonal communication, small group communication, and public communication. All of these help in communication in different environments of the
workplace thus creating development in work relations (Heinze et al. 2018).
The use of visual elements to communicate with others for the exchange of information and
ideas is known as visual communication. The visual communications that are commonly used in
workplaces to communicate include info graphics, Process diagrams, Flow-charts, roadmaps,
Charts, and graphs, Visual reports, presentations, and Mind Maps. It helps in retaining ideas and
information and creates a connection that is stronger than verbal communication. The human
brain can retain visual images longer due to the part of the brain that is responsible for long-term
memory. Thus visual communication creates a bigger impact and helps to create an efficient
work environment that helps improve work relationships.

Question 5
In this question, several categories have been provided and the relevance of those categories in
the field of work has been asked to be explained.
a) Consultation
It can be said that consultation is a process of having a discussion regarding the safety matters
that are required to be taken in the respective work field. Basically, it can be said that this is the
process of resolving issues that occur in the workplace.
b) Cultural Sensitivity
Cultural sensitivity is kind of a process that allows the employees of the organization to learn
about different people and their respective cultures. It can be observed that in an organization
people can be from different communities. Good knowledge of cultural sensitivity enables the
employees of the organization to serve their respective colleagues properly.
c) Social Sensitivity
In terms of maintaining a good work-life balance, social sensitivity is one of the categories that is
required to be considered as well. Social sensitivity is kind of an aspect that enables a person to
understand the viewpoint that their fellow colleagues have and value them properly.
d) Networking
In any workplace, networking must be considered one of the key components in terms of having
good communication with fellow colleagues. In several cases, it has been observed as a
beneficial factor for the employees to work with each other’s help.

e) Conflict Resolution
Conflicts can occur in every field, and in the case of maintaining good organizational behavior,
those conflicts must be resolved. It has been observed that there are several ways of resolving the
conflicts that occur in the workplace. However, one of them must be chosen in terms of resolving
them.

Question 6
(a)The two legislative needs relevant to managing effective workplace relationships are
Fair work
Workplace gender equality
(b) The fair work act provides the employees certain protections of rights, which include the
rights that one must have in a workplace. The right to refuse work that has a life risk, the right to
know about the hazards that are present in a workplace, right to have health and safety
discussions. All these should be implemented to help and provide the employees with the safety
and security that ensures in management of an effective workplace.
The equality of genders is a basic requirement that provides all employees with equal rights and
opportunities. This will help boost the morale of the workers helping in managing an effective
workplace.

Question 7
(a) The methods for consultation with employees are full-public, targeted, confidential and Post-
decision. These methods help in the identification of issues, prepare consultation plans, and
sharing of results.
(b) Conflict management in a workplace can be resolved by taking a considerate and rational
approach to the conflict. Investigation of the conflict is a key step that helps make critical
decisions and helps in tackling them. Letting the personnel have their say is an important part to
resolve the issue and avoid conflict. Evaluation of ongoing events helps to predict and avoid
conflict in a workplace.
(c) Task issue management can be resolved by the identification of issues and recording the
tasks that have been allotted. The determination of the impact and prioritizing of the issues is a key element to resolve workplace issues of task management. Reporting the status of plans that
have been created to resolve task management issues can be very helpful.

ASSESSMENT 2:

CASE STUDY ASSESSMENT TASK A: SUPPORTING EMPLOYEES

Question 1
The employee Brian of the organization Bounce Fitness has been working there for 10years and
has been participating in the training diligently. Brian works as a customer service officer who
responds to the incoming calls of the customers (Khan, 2019). But he has been facing issues at
work from his colleagues and team members that has led to harassment and distress in his work
environment. The key issues that Brian has been facing while working are
Age discrimination issues are one of the major factors that Brian is facing at his workplace of
bounce fitness. This involves the treatment of people or employees with less favor due to their
age. Age discrimination creates a negative environment at work due to the constant reminder of
their age and making them feel that they are not fit for work. While some workers might not be
affected by this ageism directly, this biased view of others causes distrust within the company.
This discrimination will create a rift between employees and degrade the performance of the
employee-facing discrimination at work. The betting on a person's retirement and their death
because they are old creates a negative impact on the person subjected to this treatment and
makes them feel dejected.

Question 2
Steps that need to be put in bounce fitness company policy to resolve Brian’s discrimination are
as follows.
Firstly, diversity training of employees that helps in the education in the departments of respect
and implicit bias and team building is needed. This will help in the long run for creating a
stronger and more inclusive workplace rather than the existing exclusive workplace environment.

9
Secondly, policies need to be added in place and the policies need to be enforced so that the
issues can be resolved. The concept of rewards based on an employee's performance rather than
their tenure is a good concept that should be implemented. The education on respect and other
things mentioned must be implemented during the process of hiring so that this issue doesn't
occur.
Thirdly, the acknowledgment that old age is not a disease is an important element that helps in
the removal of ageism. The change of minds of people with this kind of mentality at the Grass
root level is essential.

Question 3
The feedback to Brian will be to apologize for the harassment that he has faced while working at
Bounce fitness from gender discrimination. Reassurance is going to be provided to brian that the
situation he faced won't take place again and make him reassure that age is not a restriction.
Brian will also be rewarded for his good work and will be hoped that he continues with his work
here.
The other employees will be subjected to immediate rectification and counseling of their views
on age. And the employees that have been betting on Brian’s old age will be relieved of duty
with immediate effect for a time period so that they can reflect and rectify their mistakes.

ASSESSMENT TASK B: DEVELOP AN ISSUE MANAGEMENT PLAN
AND PROCESS

Question 1
The process that is developed to resolve the issues in a workplace firstly includes the initiation of
the employee management and a details process. This created process is meant to help the
employees that are having trouble in their working environment, and are facing trouble
overcoming them. The key stakeholder in this process has to be the management leader that will
look over this department. Then the employees can directly contact the responsible person and
share their grievances and troubles faced at work. The employee is also needed to add the
statements and hateful comments that have been said to him or her so that the depth of the issue

10
can be measured. Options for resolution will then be passed based on the complaint lodged by
the employee of the organization. A plan of action will be implemented after a discussion with
the leader of the team of management that implemented the process. Then there will be
reviewing processes that will be taken to oversee the outcome of the resolution that has been
implemented.

ASSESSMENT TASK C: UNDERSTANDING PROFESSIONAL
LEADERSHIP

Summary of leadership guide
A leader is known for its quality and analytical approaches so that any employee can get
help and understand the job culture. It can be said that gaining trust is an important aspect
and a leader needs to be friendlier with all employees (Reardon, 2018). No partiality
should be there and this is the best way to earn junior members' trust. The leader can
make better communication to increase the external contact to engage more employees.

Methods of communication
Bounce fitness is known for its practice and offering and that is why some crucial
approaches need to be implemented when it comes to the communication process.

Leadership techniques
The leadership techniques that can be implemented in the case study of bounce fitness to avoid
such situations are as follows.
The leader must be participative and easy to approach so that no one is afraid of the person and
keeps him out of the chain of events that takes place in the company.
The leader should lead by example thus making himself a role model for others to refer to when
needed for guidance.
The leader must look after the needs of employees needs and identify their dissatisfaction at
work.
The leader needs to listen to others first, thus analyzing the problem, then making their judgment.
Not passing judgment based on only one side's arguments is a key feature of a good leader.

ASSESSMENT TASK D: AGE DISCRIMINATION; CULTURAL
DIVERSITY AND ETHICS
1) The age discrimination act helps prevent discrimination against employees based on a person's
age. These laws are there to prevent employers from unreasonably discriminating against the
employees based on the ground of their age. If an employer or a colleague differentiates the
employee on the ground of age like in the case of bounce fitness Brian was facing
discrimination. This law prohibits others to distinguish based on the ground of age of an
employee.
2) Bounce fitness should have recruitment of employees that hail from different age groups to
prevent this discrimination of age at work.
3) The conflict can be used as an example that will help as a reminder that age discrimination at
the workplace is not tolerated in any company.

13
4) The best practice is the inclusion of consultation of employees on this subject, so that they
may respect others, and recruiting people with age diversity will help maintain an age
discrimination-free environment.

Assessment Task 1 – Questioning

Question 1
To improve the communication channels and improve the relationship between parties, it is
very important that stakeholders are engaged effectively. Also helps in the creation and
maintain the project and it helps to gather information and reduce the chance of conflict and
or issues related to the project. And also support the existing conflict and solve any problem
in the organization. Overall it enhances the organization’s reputation (O’Riordan & Fairbrass,
2014).

Question 2
Three methods commonly used in engagement models
Fixed price engagement model:
It’s also called a fixed bid or lump sum contract, it is most obvious. As we can see from the
name this model is all about fixing or freezing the project costs
It also helps in documenting all requirements in a careful way. Also, detail the project scope
and in setting up a timetable strictly. It’s all about predictability.
Our project scope and requirement and the end goal are must for the fixed priced models
(Day, et al., 2018).

Benefits:
Transparency: we can predict the budget transparency before the development of stars.
Time-saving: This method required less management and supervision as compared to other
methods.
Establishment of trust: It helps in establishing the trust between the partner.
Non-fixed price model: time and material
In a fixed price model time and material, it allows greater flexibility than a fixed price model.
When the market changes regularly and dynamically and the vision of the product is not clear and when the interference of tech. evolves rapidly. In that case, we can predict the final
project scope in an effective way.

Benefits Flexible: when it is about the budget of the project and scopes. In getting case it is extremely
flexible and effective for handling the request for changes and alterations.
Cheaper
These methods are cheaper for the client. The developer does not have to charge the risk to
the customer.
Risks are lower
Start quicker
Cost-plus method
It is mostly used for staffing or personal leasing, it is a process when one company lends its
specialists to another company for a specific period of time.
This means clients can borrow developers or quality engineers, etc. they can work there until
the competence of the project. they can hire them for their services.
Benefits
The cost-plus method helps to work cheaper, faster, and less risky. Also, it is less time-
consuming or wants less oversight. Also helps to maintain transparency.

Question 3
Fixed-price engagement model
Positive: Transparency: we can predict the budget transparency before the development of
stars.
Time-saving: This method required less management and supervision as compared to other
methods.
Establishment of trust: It helps in establishing the trust between the partner.

Negative:
High cost: All the risks are predicted and calculated in advance and check all things 2-3 times
including high cost.
No flexibility: there are little and less flexibility.
Non-fixed price model: time and material
Positive: Flexible: when it is about the budget of the project and scopes. In getting case it is
extremely flexible and effective for handling the request for changes and alterations.
Cheaper:
These methods are cheaper for the client. The developer does not have to charge the risk to
the customer.
Negative:
Time-consuming: It is the most time-consuming process. And it needs more oversight.
No guarantees: There are no rock-solid guarantees that projects are completed on time or not.
Discrepancy: it creates the discrepancy between project estimation and the real costs.
Cost-plus method
Positive: The cost-plus method helps to work cheaper, faster, and less risky. Also, it is less
time-consuming or wants less oversight. Also helps to maintain transparency.
Negative: it has a unique disadvantage; the client must warn 2-3 months in advance for
cancellation of service.

Question 4
Cohen-Bradford is a method of people influencing at that time when there is no authority
between two relationships. It is based on a concept of reciprocity, it is an approach that can
be effective it is an approach to getting what we want. It influences the reciprocity or a
common-law sense. It helps to influence those around them when there is an absence of
authority (Nguyen & Mohamed, 2018).

 

Question 5
It analyze the power and support of stakeholders. It helps and maps the stakeholder by their
power and support.
It is a grid of interest and power.
A matrix that supports and importance of stakeholders
The matrix influence and interest of stakeholders
Map the stakeholders by attitude and knowledge.
It is a tool from project management used by stakeholders to determine the necessary actions.
Align with their goals and project.

Question 6
By mapping, stakeholders serve and help to maintain the relationship between stakeholders
and the project of the company. It also helps in identifying the key stakeholders. It helps to
understand the relevance of stakeholders.

Question 7
Important for managers to assess the commitment and effectiveness of their stakeholders
To make commitments solid that is achievable.
Communication updates all groups.
Promises made with stakeholders (Bouma, 2015).

Question 8
It helps to improve the communications between stakeholders.
Identification of effective and powerful stakeholders helps to give shape to our project in its
early stages. It increases accountability, transparency, more ideas, and issue solving.

Question 9

We have to identify the stakeholders. It’s an early step for stakeholder management to
establish a stakeholder list.
We have to place the stakeholders on the interesting grid.
It motivates our stakeholders.
Also, build our strategy.

Question 10
Two ways of assessing stakeholders’ engagement
By questionnaires
We can engage our stakeholders with surveys or feedback. By survey, we can get a chance to
meet a large no. of people and also get different feedback from many people. This can be
done by email, via the web, face to face, or via phone.
By interviewing stakeholders
It is a very good way or opportunity to gather intelligence and information. Also, it is very
time-consuming. Through interviews, we can gather a lot of information which helps to
connect with stakeholders.

Question 11
We have to identify the stakeholders.
We have to get them involved. Align with them.
Known their needs
Get stakeholders taking
Try to understand.
Work with the team.

 

Question 12
For that, we have to reduce or lessen the risk of the project.
Manage and maintain the resources in a more effective way.
Make team collaboration.
Meet timelines.
Maintain trust and build it.
Make better relationships with stakeholders.
Make a map for stakeholders.

Question 13
Stakeholders are a very important part of the business. With them, no business can survive
long or not earn a profit. There must be effective policies and effective procedures in regard
to stakeholders. It helps an organization meet its desired objectives. And also, they help them
to contribute to the project. Stakeholders’ inputs are also an important factor in increasing the
quality.

Question 14
Stakeholders are a very important part of the business. With them, no business can survive
long or not earn a profit. They really support the business practices and also, they do financial
support. Stakeholders are people who are interested in our company. They are loyal to
customers and investors too. They are people who help where to invest the money. It
improved communication and also better management.

Question 15
Skills that need to demonstrate when interacting with stakeholders are
Communication: Effective and excellent communication help to build the relationship with
stakeholders. Leadership is also a good skill to demonstrate when interacting with stakeholders.

Question 16
Understand, compromise.

Question 17
It is very important for businesses to listen to and understand the feedback from stakeholders
also helps to give shape and improve the overall business operations. Their consultation is
used for the development of services and products generally (Dawkins, 2014).

Question 18
It is a quantitative investigation of it is a variance that comes with the difference between the
actual behavior and planned behavior. This technique is used to determine the cause. Also
give measures to maintain and control it.

Question 19
We can identify the variance by finding the mean, and to find or identify the mean, we have
to add all sources and then divide them by the. of scores.

I have to identify what stakeholders need and what they actually want we have to take care of
them because they are important to us I have to ask them what their needs are and ask them
for their feedback so we can take ideas from them. We have to identify them and noticed
them closely. Also, we can motivate them. Listen and understand what they saying, and also
we have to determine their motivation.

Part B: Facilitate Stakeholder Commitment
Stakeholder Engagement Assessment Matrix:

Stakeholder  Unaware  Resistant  Neutral  Supportive  Leading

Finance manager YES YES NO NO YES

Production team leader. YES YES YES YES NO

suppliers NO YES YES NO NO

HR manager YES NO YES YES YES

Sale manager YES YES NO YES YES

1. The methods for communication with stakeholders are:
Their engagement is really necessary for the company to achieve its goal.
We should identify the key stakeholder plan and communication.
Via email or newsletter
Or with communication automation
Via presentation also we can also give them a summary of project reports. Or via video call
or normal call.

2. The variance between the planned or actual engagement the reason maybe the maybe there
is a lack of communication between organizations and stakeholders or maybe we are not able
to provide information to them or not ask them for their feedback, Or maybe they also not
taking an interest this could be the reason for these variances ( Leonido, et al., 2020).

3. My expectation of every stakeholder is clear and I manage the stakeholders differently.
And keep stakeholders in a loop, share evidence and all research with them, and track their
sentiment.

4. We can identify their needs by talking with their communication or effective
communication is the best process to know what others thinking we can communicate to
them face to face, via video call, events, meetings, etc. we have to identify their interest and
actions. We have to maintain regular contact with them.

5. We have to identify the team’s capacity and workload.
We have to distribute the resources in the breakdown structure.
We have to check teamwork and adjust workloads according to need.
We have to improve the efficiency of the team.
We have to review our business goals with priorities.

6. I can take different communication methods to facilitate and achieve the organization’s
goal we can communicate with our stakeholders through video calls, phone calls, face to
meet. Communication helps to achieve our desired goal and also maintain our relationship
with our stakeholders.

7. At that time team need communications, leadership, adaptability, diligence, and
negotiation. We can be trained the employees to share our plan with them and take or give
feedback to give them value.

8. Finance manager is careless we have to give them training he is careless and not come in
meeting or share the idea we can talk with him, also the supplier has late delivery of raw
material we have to ask him for fast delivery. We can do communication in the breakdown
process, or we can create a communication plan, constraints resource.

A legislative and regulatory framework underpins and supports the delivery of vocational education and training across Australia. Under this framework, providers of vocational education and training must take steps to ensure that students with recognized disabilities have the same learning opportunities and same opportunities to perform and complete assessments as students without disabilities. Sometimes reasonable adjustments are made to the learning environment, training delivery, learning resources and/or assessment tasks to accommodate the particular needs of a student with a disability. An adjustment is reasonable if it can accommodate the student’s particular needs while also taking into account factors such as:
⦁ the views of the student
⦁ the potential effect of the adjustment on the student and others
⦁ the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.
RTOs are obliged by law to provide reasonable adjustments where required to ensure maximum participation of students with a disability.
Making reasonable adjustments requires the RTO to balance the need for change with the expense or effort involved in making this change. If an adjustment requires a disproportionately high expenditure or disruption, it is not likely to be reasonable.1
Please discuss with your assessor if you believe a reasonable adjustment to an assessment task, method or process needs to be made on the basis of disability.

Dimensions of Competency
To be competent, you must show your ability to perform effectively in a broad capacity. The dimensions of competency ensure the person being assessed has the skills to perform competently in a variety of different circumstances. To be competent, you must demonstrate the following:
⦁ Task Skills: The skills needed to perform a task at an acceptable level. They include knowledge and practical skills, and these are usually described in the performance criteria.
⦁ Task Management Skills: These are skills in organizing and coordinating, which are needed to be able to work competently while managing a number of tasks or activities within a job.
⦁ Contingency Skills: The skills needed to respond and react appropriately to unexpected problems, changes in routine and breakdowns while also performing competently.
⦁ Job Role/Environment Skills: The skills needed to perform as expected in a particular job, position, location and with others. These skills may be described in the range of variables and underpinning skills and knowledge.

Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence
Assessment must be conducted in accordance with the rules of evidence and principles of assessment. The following definitions of these terms are taken from the Australian Skills Quality Authority’s Users’ guide: standards for registered training organizations (RTOs) 2015.

Principles of Assessment
⦁ Validity: ‘Any assessment decision of the RTO is justified, based on the evidence of performance of the individual learner. Validity requires:
⦁ assessment against the unit(s) of competency and the associated assessment requirements covers the broad range of skills and knowledge that are essential to competent performance
⦁ assessment of knowledge and skills is integrated with their practical application
⦁ assessment to be based on evidence that demonstrates that a learner could demonstrate these skills and knowledge in other similar situations
⦁ judgement of competence is based on evidence of learner performance that is aligned to the unit/s of competency and associated assessment requirements.’
⦁ Reliability: ‘Evidence presented for assessment is consistently interpreted and assessment results are comparable irrespective of the assessor conducting the assessment.’
⦁ Flexibility: ‘Assessment is flexible to the individual learner by:
⦁ reflecting the learner’s needs
⦁ assessing competencies held by the learner no matter how or where they have been acquired
⦁ drawing from a range of assessment methods and using those that are appropriate to the context, the unit of competency and associated assessment requirements, and the individual.’
⦁ Fairness: ‘The individual learner’s needs are considered in the assessment process. Where appropriate, reasonable adjustments are applied by the RTO to take into account the individual learner’s needs. The RTO informs the learner about the assessment process and provides the learner with the opportunity to challenge the result of the assessment and be reassessed if necessary.’

Rules of Evidence
⦁ Validity: ‘The assessor is assured that the learner has the skills, knowledge and attributes as described in the module or unit of competency and associated assessment requirements.’

⦁ Sufficiency: ‘The assessor is assured that the quality, quantity and relevance of the assessment evidence enables a judgement to be made of a learner’s competency.’
⦁ Currency: ‘The assessor is assured that the assessment evidence demonstrates current competency. This requires the assessment evidence to be from the present or the very recent past.’
⦁ Authenticity: ‘The assessor is assured that the evidence presented for assessment is the learner’s own work.’

Glossary of Instructional Task Words
The assessment tasks use a range of instructional words, such as ‘compare’ and ‘list’. These terms will guide the student and yourself regarding the level of detail that must be provided in students’ answers. Some questions will also tell you how many answers students need to give – for example, ‘Describe three
strategies…’. Use the following glossary to guide you in interpreting the words in the tasks:
⦁ Analyze – This means you should break an issue down into its component parts, identify them and explain how they relate. You should discuss the issue in detail and methodically.
⦁ Compare – This means you should describe the similarity or differences between two or more things, ensuring you also discuss the relevance of the differences. You may also be asked to ‘contrast’, as in ‘compare and contrast’, which means you are also focusing on the dissimilarity.
⦁ Define – This means you should explain the meaning or interpretation of a term or concept in your own words, including any qualities which are essential to understanding.
⦁ Describe – This means you should outline the most noticeable qualities or features of an idea, topic or the focus of the question.
⦁ Discuss – This means you must point out the important issues or features, key points, possible interpretations, and debate through argument. You should provide reasons for and against.
⦁ Evaluate – This means you must judge or calculate the quality, importance, amount, or value of something. You must provide an in-depth answer with as much detail as possible.
⦁ Examine – This means you must look at, or consider, the item or subject carefully and in detail to discover something about it. You will need to provide a detailed response with key points and features. You should provide a response with as much detail as possible, but a minimum of one or two paragraphs in length. Examine is similar to analyze.
⦁ Explain – This means you need to make something clear or show your understanding by describing it or providing information about it. You will need to make clear how or why something happened or something is the way it is.
⦁ Identify – You must recognize something and indicate what the required information is. The length of the answer should be guided by what you are being asked to identify.
⦁ List – You must record short pieces of information in a numbered or bulleted form with one or two words or sentences on each line.
⦁ Outline – You must give a brief description of the main facts or sequence of events about something. The length of the response should be guided by what you are required to outline. As long as you include the main facts or points, then that’s enough.
⦁ Summaries – You must ⦁ express the most important facts or points about something in short and concise form.

The following outlines the assessment requirements for this unit. You are required to complete all assessment requirements outlined below to achieve competency for this unit.

Subject:
Complaint
Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing today to complain of the poor service I received from CBSA on November 12, 2020. I was visited by a representative of CBSA, Mr. Simons, at my business on that day.
Mr. Simons was one hour late for our finical planning appointment and offered nothing by way of apology when he arrived at noon. Your representative did not follow social distancing protocol and was rude to our office manager. Mr. Simons then proceeded to present a range of products to me that I had specifically told his assistant by telephone I was not interested in. I repeatedly tried to ask your representative about the products of interest to me, but he refused to answer my questions. We ended our meeting after 25 minutes without either of us having accomplished anything.

I am most annoyed that I wasted a morning (and half a day’s vacation) waiting for Mr. Simons to show up. My impression of CBSA has been tarnished, and I am now concerned about how your firm is managing my existing business. Furthermore, Mr. Madman’s inability to follow social distancing protocol has meant that I have had to engage the services and incur the expense, of a professional cleaner in our entry and meeting room.
I trust this is not the way CBSA wishes to conduct business with valued customers—I have been with you since the company was founded and have never encountered such treatment before. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss matters further and learn how you propose preventing a similar situation from recurring. I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully, Wendy Nguyen

During your investigation of the matter, you interviewed the office staff that responds to the emails received in the feedback@cbsa.com.au email address, Jinni Choa.

Jinni: ‘When I read the email, I thought that Wendy Nguyen had no right to complain as they had previously told the sales team that they were not going to continue with CBSA and were going to engage a competitor to manage their financial planning. The email is probably still in the Main Inbox.’

Report

As I read the email from Gavin Stead that there is a customer complaint that CBSA received but the complaint was received by Our staff and the complaint was about the meeting and the poor service that was received by the W. Nguyen business on 12 Nov 2020 as I go through whole complaint and documents of customers complaint registers and also investigate whole staff by doing meeting individually. I got the reason why the complaint was received by the staff as I investigating Miss Jinni who is employed at our workplace I ask her the reason she directly said that Wendy Nguyen has no right to complain because when previously sales team of CBSA team visited her business place she directly told our team that her business organisation was not going to continue with CBSA and they will going engage a competitor to manage their financial planning.
When I heard this from Jinni I was also shocked about this Statement about the CBSA so I asked him if there is any mail or any proof in writing that they said this she replied the mail is in the inbox of mail, so I come to conclusion and after analysing the whole situation about the problem that this is the reason why the complaint was not registered by our office staff.
As per concerns of breaches of CBSA policies I further investigate I found no breaches in the policies so I came to the conclusion that not registering of complaint was nothing but just some reaction to that statement by the Wandy and this statement led to a change in the behaviour of staff toward Wandy business and that lead to reachingMr Simon late in the financial planning appointment. Our staff was not interested in meeting but because of the appointment, Mr Simons goes to Wandy workplace to complete the formality of the appointment and this led to the problem that happen that day.
But the positive from this complaint is that they are still interested in CBSA and also want CBSA to solve the problem of financial planning, because if they want to discontinue they will not complain to us and don’t ask for a solution from us.
To solve this problem after analysis and synthesis of the idea of solving a problem and the cause of the problem I get the conclusion that there should be a meeting with office staff and others so that we can deliver them some important things like how to handle a situation like as they are one of the best customers since company founded so letting them go away from us may have worst effect to the policies because everyone is important for us and staff should always behave well in any conditions and also it is important that they also attract the going away customers by creative thinking so that they will continue with for a longer time.

ACTION PLAN TEMPLATE
Assess team members Team Member Actions Team Leader Actions
For example, the Team Member lacks self- confidence but is able to summarise the key takeouts of the meeting. Team Member is ready to move from Phase 1 to Phase 2. For example, complete Assertiveness Skills Training to build confidence to speak up.
For example, take notes or minutes in meetings and prepare a summary of the meeting. For example, provide less instruction when assigning tasks to encourage the team member to think about the process required or ask questions.
For example, invite a team member to more meetings and ask them to take the minutes.
The team members can understand the meeting points but at the delivery time, they were not able to answer the client’s questions and this lack of the creative and critical thinking team members. Assertiveness Skills Training to build confidence to speak up.

Roleplay
Tina Hughes: Good Morning to all of you I am the sales and marketing manager at CBSA so thank you for giving your precious time, as you all know about the recent incident that had happened a few days back so I am not here to discuss that incident with you because as you already know that from that incident I observe many things in the office staff members and among team members there are some problems.
Team members: good Morning Mam so what are the problems that you observed?
Tina Hughes: I will tell let me ask you did you complete all your tasks efficiently and effectively and without negotiating the quality of the task?
Team member 1: yes mam but some tasks are done but not as per standards that needed to complete
Tina Hughes: so what problem did you face in the quality maintenance of the ask?
Team member1: the team leaders did not give clear instructions and lack in the information needed to complete the work.
Tina Hughes: ok I will see that, so the next thing I want to ask you is an insight into important and unimportant things of the assignment?
Team member2: yes, I understood all importantaspects of the project but was not able to understand what is to avoid in that project and this led to communication problems during the delivery of the task.
Tina Hughes: ok I will into the problem and I would like to suggest you if you ever encounter any problem first you should think critically and creatively these thinking aspects can change the ways of doing your task properly and efficiently so I will make a creatively and critically thinking plan and according to that training will be done so that you will become more efficient work. Any other problem that you are facing related to a task or project?
Team members: no Mam
Tina Hughes: ok thank you now I leave and I recommend the action plan as soon as possible.

Report
As the I conducted meetings with team members to know what the flaws and strong points in the thinking of members are and also to know how they handle any project and task to do effectively and to analyse why these problems are coming during the projects and tasks I come to know many problems in the thinking of team members.
Firstly, there should be proper training because in a team meeting I asked many questions to the team members in which I identified that they are lacking in creative and critical thinking skills and these skills are important for the development of many team members do hard work but they didn’t quality of the task, many members know what is important to do the task but they don’t know how to avoid unimportant things and also don’t know what the things that they need to avoid due to which they have lacked in communication with clients, they also give recommendations but they are unable to give reasons to support those recommendations due to which they lack in confidence in front of clients and importantly they figure out the answers that asked by the clients but they don’t know how to answer them.
To encounter these problems in the workplace I made an action plan that will to some extent to team members to think critically and creatively my recommendation is to develop a training program that should help team members, and also there is more recommendation for the respective team leaders that when they working on any project with team members they should give all the information related to that project every detail of project should be delivered to the team members.

Summary report
The Previous meeting was conducted with the team members for the unique purpose and also for the suggestion the objective behind that meeting was two the first one was to get some suggestion for the event of anniversary which was in three months so involvement of staff members must be there so that they will not think negative and also important for them as they are the part of the organisation and the second objective was how the training of critical thinking and creative thinking was going on in the team members which was a most important purpose of the meeting.
The purpose of the meeting was successful to extinct but there is some time that is now also needed so that there will be perfect apply of this training as I asked in the team members about the suggestion of programmes and how events will be done so that I can check the creative thinking as well as critical thinking style from which I got mostly positive result among the team members, the team member1 has the great ability of creative ideas and want some new things in the event from which he was very excited and also he was very keen to give new-new ideas for the event. The team member 2 is moderated whose critical thinking and creative thinking are balanced as he suggested some traditional ideas of celebration but also suggested new ideas for the events but the team member 3 is a critical thinker whose ideas are mostly traditional and also least active in creative idea his ideas are matching perfectly to the critical thinking style which is worrying.
After this meeting and the outcomes are positive but still, but there are some gaps which should in the training as some team members are procreative thinkers and some are pro critical thinkers which should not be there will always be a balance between critical thinking and creative thinking so that all staff can communicate properly and also, they can communicate with clients. There should be more training needed for them the procreative and critical thinkers should communicate with each other so that they can exchange their ideas and also think like each other this helps them to build a balanced thinker and this will help in the workplace them. And also there should always assess by different-different activities so that we can track the progress report of the team members and apply the training according to that ways.

Part A
Step 1

Question 1
Woolworth group limited is the largest Australian supermarket grocery chain. It operates
around 1076 stores in Australia. It deals in groceries, Foods &amp; Vegetable, Fresh, Pantry,
Drinks, Liquor, baby products, health &amp; beauty &amp; household products. It has 14.6 million
regular customers &amp; Around 5,000 online customers. Its business value is $ 34.6 billion

Woolworth’s strategy is based on the following 3 things:

(A) Continuous Growth: Woolworth tries to do innovative things to fulfill the need of customers
(Westwood, 2013).

(B) Providing offers: Woolworth try to improve their core offers. So that customers will buy to
prefer from them

(C) Improving the efficiency of work: Woolworth tries to improve the efficiency of the work.
So that it can deliver the best service to the customers.

Question 2

Woolworth uses its marketing strategy effectively so now ithas captured the highest market
share compared to other supermarkets. It follows the STP (Segmentation, Targeting, and
Positioning) approach for its marketing strategy.
Segmentation: In this strategy, the company divides its total target market into small markets
based on different criteria like Geographical, Demographical &amp; Behavioral. Demographical
criteria are based on the following points: Gender, Age, or Income level. Geographical
criteria are based on the location of the business and Behavioral criteria are based on those
people of prefer quality products.
Targeting: In these criteria, we selected the final target market depending on their age, Taste
&amp; their gender it also includes the geographical criteria.
Positioning: In this criterion, company try to get the comparison with its competitors
according to position, price &amp; quality of product.

Question 3
Every Business performance depends on its SWOT analysis (Strength, Weakness,
Opportunity &amp; Threat)
Strength: Woolworths is one of the oldest companies which introduce the modern retail
trade. It’s a well-known Retail company of Australia which has 900+ stores, It has more than
1, 00,000 + employees. &amp; $34.6 billion market value. It is a very famous brand name which
is famous for its efficient operations (Westwood, 2013).
Weakness: The main weakness of Woolworth is that its approach is very low in the global
market.
Opportunity: It has a wide opportunity to expand its business in geographical locations. As
we know that its well-known brand so it can promote through advertising, &amp; promotions. It
can also promote it through the franchise model.
Threats: The threats depend on the market condition like rising the cost of raw materials of
food & non-food products which impact company profit. Another threat is economic
recession. another threat is the competition from the international competitor.

Question 4
The company makes the strategy to develop the organization’s capabilities for business
growth &amp; success. Woolworth tries to implement their Green refrigeration technology
through which perishable goods can be stored for a long time. Capabilities is kind of skill of
the organization through which we can use the resources of the company to increase the
productivity of the organization. Capabilities of Woolworth are:
A) Providing the customer service efficiently to assist them to choose the right product related to
their needs.
B) Another capability of Woolworth is the availability of stock.
C) The most effective is its marketing capability to ensure that business runs smoothly&amp;
efficiently.

External Business Environment

Question1.
Business market growth depends on its total sales. Growth can depend on many factors like
when sales increases constantly we need to fulfill the requirements related to stock
availability, Stock management, Cold storage, follow FIFO methods (First in First out).
Another factor is market competitors &amp; their strategies that will affect business. So we need
to focus on the quality of products also rather than their quality.

Question 2
Labor force participation of people of a particular age group, education of people, Race &amp;
ethnicity of people’s family structure is some points that may affect the marketing strategies.

Question 3
The External Business environment may affect the marketing. We need to get the information
about competitors in the market Like their offers, their strength, Weakness, etc So that we can
get the information that will help to grow the business. Also, the company needs to set a
benchmark strategy for itself so that company will try to improve its service according to it &amp;
which will help to achieve the benchmark which has been set for company growth.

Question 4
The external business environments which can directly or indirectly affect are:
Customer’s trend: We need to do marketing according to customer needs &amp; trend. Nowadays
most of the company does surveys to know the taste &amp; preferences of customers. It depends
upon the Government’s activity &amp; demographic changes like new place &amp; new opportunity
etc.

Question 5
Opportunities presented
By the new technologies
Nowadays most of the company does their marketing strategy according to market trends like
Social Media, Users survey, Data Analytics, etc. These are some tools through which we can
get to know the detail about customers’ preferences. We can promote the products &amp; services

through social media which is very trendy nowadays. We can get the data about people like
&amp; dislike through which we can get to know about their choice &amp; their need. So that
company will serve the products &amp; services according to their need.

Step 2
Question 1
The opportunity or success of any product or company is based on the Internal &amp; External
environment.
Factors that relate to the External Environment are:
Political changes are like any agreement related to trends. Social factors like age factors
changes in their lifestyle etc. Economic factors like Exchange rates &amp; interest rates.
Technology factors like new material or any equipment, Environment factors such as
environmental law and its impact on the environment.
Factors that relate to the Internal Environment are:
SWOT Analysis of any company like its (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity &amp; Threat)
These are 4 main things that will affect the company’s internal environment.

Question 2
A list of new innovative marketing strategies
a) Try to upload the educational content related to the products like its origin, taste types,
benefits, etc.
b) Provide solutions 24*7 related to customer queries &amp; help
c) Keep promoting the new products &amp; provide the discount &amp; offer information related to
products on social media OR on the Company’s website
d) Reward to loyal customers to show your appreciation who have been associated with the
company for very long time

Question 3

The marketing channels and distribution networks will use for marketing communications
and materials are Print media, TV advertisement, and Marketing on Social media platforms.

surveys, we can enhance the skill of marketing.

Question 4

it wants to succeed or Sustains in the market for a long time. A company that follows the
Legal rules &amp; ethics will help to improve its brand values. It also creates a good image in
customers’ minds. It generates the faith of customers to keep doing business with that
company because they know about the ethics &amp; law which the company follows to create its
brand image.

Question 5
A stakeholder is a kind of individual or a group who has direct or indirect Stakes in the
company Consultation with stakeholders is meant to inform the public about plans for
upcoming projects. Stakeholders can be (Owners, Employees, Managers, Shareholders,
students, etc.) Stakeholders can beneficial for decision-making of any project they eill help &amp;
assist with their ideas &amp; feedback related to the project. So its very necessary to take
consultation with stakeholders.

Step 3

reason of marketing like why it is needed &amp; the key points of marketing related to any project
&amp; services we need to highlight those key points, which will help to focus on successful

to identify its first then divided their duty accordingly. Offer them a reward or prize by doing
essential work so that colleagues will be happy to perform this task. It can also improve their
productivity related to work.

Step 4

sale for the same month or the previous month.

by asking about the quality of the product
Keep eye on Competitors: After completion of marketing, we need to keep eye on
competitors. Ensure they are not copying your ideas and strategy also keeps a look at their
business to get to know about the effect of the marketing campaign.

Question 2
Methods for success evaluation of benchmarking are:
