Thank you so much
This Unit 20 Business Health Check enables learners to gain understanding of the focuses of the business, gain skills to develop plans, and evaluate and develop management and staff skills.
This unit introduces learners to the process of carrying out a business health check. Learners will study how techniques can be applied to track the progress of a business and amend its direction depending on what is happening inside and outside the business at any time. Learners will consider issues such as turnover, profitability, sales and marketing, customer and employee satisfaction, quality of products or services, productivity and product development. They will also take into account the interests of stakeholders, such as owners, customers, staff, backers and suppliers. Learners will also develop techniques to review management and staffing skills and enable them to respond to new challenges. Learners must ensure that their evidence relates to the hospitality industry
Business priorities will vary and discussion groups will enable learners to consider a broad range of issues. In reviewing a business in order to develop plans, tutors will choose for learners group to work as a whole unit to support an existing business, or to use a case study. It is important to understand the development of health-check processes as the outcome of this unit. Capacity is limited by the time frame for delivering and assessing the unit and a wider coverage can be achieved through a group effort. Learners need to understand the range of support and help they can utilise when carrying out a business health check. Sources of advice and guidance learners will explore include business associates, business advice centres, business advisers, counsellors, coaches or mentors, specialist consultants, non-executive directors, accountants and other professionals.
