Assessment Task 2 Instructions as provided to students

Carefully read the following:

Ozhouse Clean is based in Sydney and offers professional, residential cleaning services, including regular home cleans, as well as spring cleans.

The company was established in 2005 and is a family business established and operated by James and Nancy Anderson. James and Nancy are the Directors of the company and finance any business expansion themselves.

Their daughters, Amanda and Sarah, are also employed by the company and manage the business for their parents who are not involved operationally. Amanda is the Operations Manager and Sarah is the Administration Manager. You have been brought on as a General Manager to help the business reach its goals.

The company sees its point of difference from competitors as being a small family business, with a focus on quality and happy and contented staff and customers. The management team understands this point of difference may need to change as the business grows. There may need to be more management or administrative staff employed, for example, while Amanda manages marketing, she is not skilled in this area and is very busy with the operational side of the business, so a skilled marketing officer may be needed.

Currently target customers are consumers located in the greater Sydney area. Target customers are people who want a professional, trustworthy and immaculate cleaning service. Pricing reflects that of competitors.

The company employs 15 cleaners, all of whom are part-time contract staff working between 10 and 15 hours a week. The company currently has approximately 70 regular clients, based around Melbourne inner city. These clients require regular home cleaning, either weekly or once every two weeks for 3 to 6 hours. A standard hourly rate of $40 is charged. Staff receive an hourly rate of $25 per hour. The cost of the products provided to staff for cleaning, including equipment and ongoing supplies such as cleaning products, works out to be approximately an additional $2 per hour on top of the rate paid to staff. The company is also considering whether it may be wiser to move to employing a number of full-time, permanent cleaning staff. This is partly because there is a high turnover of casual staff and little loyalty to the company. Staff costs for employing a full-time cleaner is $55,000 per year, including superannuation payments.

All ongoing cleaning supplies are currently purchased from Total Cleaning Supplies in Melbourne. However, as this company does not currently offer environmentally friendly products for use in cleaning, a different supplier needs to be identified. It is estimated that the purchase of these products will be an additional $10,000 per month. The products cost double the amount of the non-environmentally friendly products.

However, an exciting new initiative has emerged and Ozhouse Clean has almost completed the manufacture of environmentally friendly cleaning products which it intends to use, as well as supply to customers through an online website. It has also emerged that there may be a possibility to sell these products overseas too due to the popularity of Australian environment products generally. However, this project won’t be for another 12 months.

Sales revenue for the company for the financial year ending 2019 is $360,000 with a gross profit margin of $40,000. Labour costs are a significant part of the business, representing 70% of total costs. Average debtor days are currently 40 days.

Currently, marketing is via a website, but a large proportion of the company’s work comes through word of mouth from existing customers. Social media is not used currently to market the business.

The company understands that in this period of growth and expansion, it needs clear plans. While it has developed an operational priorities plan, the information in the plan is limited and is for the upcoming year only.

The following information is included on its web site about its mission, vision and values:

Mission

We are constantly working to establish ourselves as the most respected and sought-after supplier of cleaning services.

Assessment Task 3 Instructions as provided to students

Carefully read the following:

The Strategic Plan for Ozhouse Clean is now finalised. However, (much to your annoyance) the Directors have just advised that they prefer to prefer to move away from the concept of a Strategic Plan and have a Business Plan which they see as being more in keeping with what other organisations do. They have advised that understand that much of the information already developed for the Strategic Plan can go into the new Business Plan.

Complete the following activities:

  1. Develop business plan

Based on the Director’s decision you are required to develop the business plan using the template provided. The template includes some of the information already developed in Assessment Task 2 but there are some additional areas so carefully study the template.

Your business plan must be written in clear and concise English and you will be assessed on this.

When conducting research and developing your business plan, use the following website: https://www.business.gov.au/ developed by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as your technical advisor and make use of the chat function shown here. Choose an area of the business plan you feel you need some assistance with, for example, customer loyalty initiatives. Select the option “advice and information to help you and your business, including small businesses and independent contractors” when accessing the chat function so the advisor can direct you to the best information that suits your query.

Take a screen shot of your communication with the advisor and submit this to your assessor along with any email communication they may have sent through.

Complete all of the following activities to develop a business plan (noting that you will already have completed much of this work in Assessment Task 2) including:

  • Identifying and analysing trends in demand for cleaning services, nationally as well as in the local Sydney market.
  • Identifying competitors in the market for Ozhouse Clean. Include information about at least three competitors, providing a summary of their services, as well as explaining how their services compete with Ozhouse Clean and any points of difference that will enable Ozhouse Clean to stand out.
  • Identifying and analysing target consumer needs for specific types of cleaning services e.g. environmentally friendly cleaning services. This may be through identifying secondary satisfaction of data or through a review of social media, for example. Make sure you add a customer satisfaction survey to your action plan as an immediate task that the General Manager will be responsible for. This is so you can complete an activity further on in this assessment.
  • A SWOT analysis.
  • Identifying and evaluating alternative pricing strategies to current pricing strategies as per the scenario information.
  • Identify potential marketing strategies for existing residential services, as well as commercial and environmentally friendly cleaning services. This may be through reviewing how competitors market their services, as well as identifying effective marketing strategies.
  • Identifying any permits or licences that are required for commercial cleaning and environmentally friendly cleaning services.
  • Identifying suppliers of environmentally friendly cleaning products that can provide Ozhouse Clean with products. Identify at least three options, including the supplier contact details and summary of products offered.
  • Identifying key activities and required financial, physical and human resources requirements based on analysis conducted in the action plan.
  • Identifying the additional staff that will be required to manage the expansion into contract cleaning and environmentally friendly cleaning services. Actions included in the business plan should show how this will be achieved in terms of identifying staff needed, the qualifications and experience they require, recruiting the required staff, and inducting staff.
  • Identifying key performance indicators that can be used to assess both the financial and non-financial performance of the business.
  1. Send an email to the management team (your assessor)

The directors of the company have approved the business plan and have asked you to begin implementation. Your first task is to email the management team the approved business plan.

The text of the email should be in grammatically correct English, written in an appropriate (polite, business-like) style.

It should introduce and summarise the contents of the attachment.

The email text should explain that the business plan is going operational and provide a brief overview of the timelines for implementation and key performance requirements. Your email also needs to ensure that the Operations Manager and the Administration Manager are equipped and prepared to begin implementation of the action items assigned to them.

Attach your business plan to the email.

  1. Assist Amanda with an implementation task

Amanda has approached you for assistance with the customer satisfaction survey she is responsible for as she doesn’t have a lot of marketing experience. Partner up with one of your classmates and together develop a customer satisfaction survey which you can generate to customers through Survey Monkey.

Create a new Word document for this activity, and name it accordingly.

The questionnaire should fit on one side of an A4 page.

Develop between 6 - 8 questions that measure customer satisfaction and can be answered on a sliding scale from 1 (which is don’t agree at all) to 10 (which is totally agree).

Use language that is polite and friendly. There should be a space under the questions for responders to give written feedback.

During this activity you need to take turns training each other:

  • Part 1 – team member 1 role plays Amanda while team member 2 coaches her on developing a survey in a Word document
  • Part 2 – team member 2 role plays Amanda while team member 1 coaches her on how to upload the survey to SurveyMonkey and distribute.

Your assessor will be looking to see that you can effectively coach and train someone by demonstrating, assisting and guiding.

Send your survey to your assessor.

  1. Onboard a new employee

Read the following:

Amanda has completed her task and has received responses. Management has discussed it and they let you know that this is related to the reliability of contractor staff as has been previously discussed. The time has come to appoint one of the contractors as a fulltime employee to ensure the business is adequately equipped to deal with current and new customers.

A suitable contract cleaner has been identified and they have agreed to the fulltime job offer and conditions.

Prepare the employee contract template included in your resource folder in the relevant sections using the information below:

Employee: David Smith, 5 Wellington Way, Melbourne 3000

Working hours: 9 am – 5pm.

38 hours per week

Fortnightly payment basis

  1. Send an email to the employee (your assessor).

The text of the email should be in grammatically correct English, written in an appropriate (polite, business-like) style.

It should introduce and summarise the contents of the attachment and ask them to read through and return the contract if happy with its content. Inform them of a training session they need to attend with Amanda as part of the induction process which will occur next Monday at 9am. Provide a summary of the training as taken from the induction checklist included in your resources folder and let them know they can direct any questions they have to Amanda who will be their direct manager moving forward.

Assessment Task 4 Instructions as provided to students

Carefully read the following.

It is one year since the business plan was implemented and as the General Manager, you are reviewing the performance of the business against the performance indicators identified in the plan, testing performance indicators used and recommending changes to performance indicators as provided.

You have also been asked to provide an overall evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the business plan to date (this will be the business plan you developed for Assessment Task 2).

Assume that the performance indicators identified in the business plan are as follows:

  • A 20% increase in total sales revenue.
  • A gross profit margin of 20%.
  • Reduction of 50% in debtor days
  • 10 new commercial customers in the first year of the business plan.
  • Reduction of 10% of workforce turnover based on employing two full-time permanent cleaners, as well as increasing wages to above award.

Data provided by the accountant for this financial year show the following figures:

  • Total sales revenue: $450,000
  • Total cost of sales: $320,000
  • Debtor days: 30
  • 15 new commercial customers

The Administration Manager has advised you that at least 10 of the previous residential customers no longer use the company’s services, so while sales revenue has increased, the sales revenue attributable to residential sales has declined. 

In addition, follow up emails to the customers who no longer used the services indicated the following responses to the question asked about why they no longer use the services:

  • Moved interstate: 1
  • Dissatisfied with the quality of cleaning services provided (not enough attention to detail, cleaner finishing earlier than time paid for): 5
  • Moved to a competitor as better service and price offered: 4

Complete the following activities:

  1. Prepare to develop monitoring and evaluation report

Review the scenario information.

Develop an outline for your report ensuring that:

  • Your report will address a balance of both financial and non-financial information on business performance as per the scenario information.
  • To assist in making the information as user friendly as possible, your report should include visual information to show how the business has performed such as graphs or charts.

Ensure that you provide your report according to the timelines set by your assessor to show that you can provide timely reports. You will be assessed on this.

  1. Develop a business monitoring and evaluation report

Your report should include the following:

  • An overview of business performance based on the data provided for this year, as well as the data provided for the previous year (as documented in the scenario information for Assessment Task 2).
  • An analysis of business performance to determine if the performance indicators have been achieved.
  • An evaluation of the non-financial information gained from the survey, impact on the business and variations that could be made to the business plan based on this information.
  • A review of additional performance measures that can be used to measure customer retention and customer satisfaction based on the decrease in residential customers as advised in the scenario information.

You will need to research the range of performance measures that could be used and report on performance indicators that you consider to be suitable.

Your report should include a clear explanation of the performance indicators and your rationale for using these indicators.

  • An evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the business plan (the plan you developed for Assessment Task 2) and recommended improvements.

Review the information at the link below (paste the link into your browser if the link is not working directly) and for each component of your business plan.

Assessment Task 6 Instructions as provided to students

Carefully read the following:

Ozhouse Clean is now in the next stage of development and wants to develop a Marketing Plan. Assume that it is 18 months later and the new environmentally friendly products are selling through the web site.

With regard to the marketing of the cleaning services and products, the company is reasonably happy with sales through the web site but would like to do more in the future, for example, through reviewing search engine optimisation and to use social media to generate sales. The company is now in a strong financial position and has a budget of around $150,000 for marketing for the upcoming financial year.

The company would like to add more products over time and is focussed on a range of products to meet particular customer needs rather than a one-size fits all. The company is also interested in expanding overseas. Research has identified that Japan may represent a good opportunity for the company, as it has been identified there are good opportunities for products made from natural ingredients. The company has also decided to target essentially the same group of consumers as for the Australian market, as it has identified that a key group of consumers in Japan for products are middle-aged and older women who seek functionality and higher-value-added items.

Regarding the company’s current promotional activities, successful promotional activities have been advertisements on the various environmental products website and in the Natural Health magazine. There have also been promotions as part of cleaning services with the focus on high quality products.

The management team has advised that its primary marketing objectives are:

  • Increase the number of people who make a purchase of products while visiting the online store by 20%.
  • Get the environmentally friendly products into retail outlets.
  • To increase product awareness amongst the target market by 20%.
  • To increase market share to 15%.
  • To expand into at least one international market.
  • To identify new products and new markets.
  • To attain annual growth of at least 10% over the next three years.

Regarding market trends, the following have all contributed to the growth in popularity of natural-based personal care products:

  • health warnings
  • environmental concerns
  • ethical concerns

It is predicated that the environmental cleaning products industry will continue to grow strongly in the retail sector. Cleaning products in general are also still growing strongly.

Complete the following activities:

  1. Write a marketing plan briefing report.

Revisit the Business Plan you developed in Assessment Task 3 and the scenario information above.

Based on the plans, identify and evaluate least three potential marketing opportunities for Ozhouse Clean and that align with organisational objectives.

The evaluation of each of the marketing opportunities that you identify should include the following:

  • The fit with organisation’s objectives.
  • Risks of each of the marketing opportunities you have identified.
  • Potential returns of each of the marketing opportunities. Returns can be identified in general terms, for example, greater market share.

Identify and report on feasible marketing strategies that can be implemented for the marketing opportunities you have identified, including strategies that:

  • Address the four p’s of the marketing mix in accordance with the organisation’s marketing objectives, including desired positioning.
  • Align with organisational strengths as described in the case study information
  • Are relevant to the three marketing opportunities you have identified
  • Are consistent with the company’s ability to implement such marketing strategies given the information provided in the case study.

The briefing report must include a clear rationale for your selection of marketing strategies based on the above, and clearly demonstrate how the strategies align with the company’s strategic objectives.

Following determination of the marketing strategies, you are required to plan and report on marketing tactics for each of the marketing strategies you have identified.

This must include:

  • Details of proposed marketing tactics to implement each strategy and rationale for such.
  • Timing of the marketing tactics, staff roles and responsibilities and costs involved. Costing should be developed in line with the budget outlined in the case study information. You should research the cost of the marketing tactic you identified using the Internet to ascertain general costs and record these in the briefing report.
  • Recommended coordination and monitoring mechanisms that will be used to ensure that the marketing tactics are implemented as required and according to timelines.
  • How the proposed marketing tactics are achievable within the available budget and staff and are relevant to the organisation’s marketing objectives.
  • Legal and ethical issues that need to be considered in using the marketing tactics proposed and how you have ensured these issues are addressed. The following codes and legislation should be reviewed to assist in the identification of legal and ethical issues (depending on the marketing tactics proposed):

You may include notes within your presentation program to assist you in presenting.
