Each of these will be considered the forecast not have been completely accurate ; how within the sphere of catering.
Are the staff capable of what is required of them? If not, Forecasting the supervisor needs to plan some training. This, of Before making plans it is necessary to look ahead, to course, is particularly important if new equipment is foresee possible and probable outcomes and to allow installed. As can be seen from these examples, it is necessary for forecasting to precede planning and from planning we now move to organising. Organising In the catering industry organisational skills are applied to food, to equipment and to staff.
Organis- ing in this context consists of ensuring that what is wanted is where it is wanted, when it is wanted, in the right amount and at the right time. Such organisation involves the supervisor in the pro- duction of duty rotas, maybe training programmes and also cleaning schedules. Consider the supervisors part in organising an outdoor function where a wed- ding reception is to be held in a church hall: a total of guests require a hot meal to be served at 2 p.
The supervisor would need to organise staff to be available when required, to have their own meals and maybe to see that they have got their transport home. Calor gas stoves may be needed and the supervisor would have to arrange for these to be serviced and for the equipment used to be cleaned after the function. The food would need to be ordered so that it arrived in time to be prepared. If decorated hams were to be used on the buffet then they would need to be ordered in time so that they could be prepared, cooked and decorated over the required period of time. If the staff have never carved hams before, instruction would Coordinating need to be given; this entails organising training.
Coordinating is a skill required to get staff to cooper- ate and work together.
