Scenario

John Readings started life as an Australian-based book retailer and specialist publisher. The company takes orders from specialist retailers and other organisations and supplies them with book products that contain details of the purchasing company and/or customer.

Recently, John Readings has found its market share in decline due to a strong Australian dollar and increased overseas competition. In addition, labour costs are eating into profit margins.

Trends in the Australian book industry suggest that the company, although it is in a strong financial position now, will struggle to make a profit within two years.

To ensure the continued existence of John Readings, the company embarked on a bold new strategic direction:

  1. Develop and publish a broad selection of authors and sell direct to B2B as well as consumers,
  • Purchase/takeover suitable Australian publishing companies,
  • Leverage online and e-commerce opportunities to reduce bricks and mortar costs and increase profit margins.

Company vision: In the next five years, John Readings will re-establish itself as a large, multi- channel and profitable book company providing a range of innovative and exciting new titles to a world market and thereby securing a future for Australian publishing and book sales.

You are the leader of the Customer Service team of a busy, customer-focused support centre within John Readings online business (i.e. telemarketing/customer support). You are responsible for ensuring that the support centre is always staffed with appropriate staff who can make callers feel comfortable, attend to their questions and needs knowledgably and promptly and who are able to explain and promote new products and services of the company.

At any one time you have a team of five support centre staff with three required per shift. Due to the nature of the work you have an average staff turnover of one position quarterly.

NOTE: You can find a brief introduction to each of your current team members in Appendix 1.

At a recent department meeting, the department’s operational plan was introduced from which you now need to develop a performance plan for your customer service team. You also need to remember the ongoing team requirements as well as those new requirements brought about by the operational plan.

  1. For this task, create a Word document titled: Work team breakdown. This is a business report for management that describes your team (i.e. skills and abilities) and outlines the team objectives. For tips on writing a business report click here. The report will need to be in business format (with a table of contents etc.) and address the following headings:
  1. A brief overview of the organisation and its background and a description of the type of activities it conducts,
  • The vision, mission and purpose of the organisation,
  • The goals/objectives of the organisation,
  • The name of the team and the department in which it is located, the number of team members and a description of the overall activities of the team (NOTE: If you are using the case study, you can find a brief introduction to all 5 team members in Appendix 1),
  • Define the team’s goals for the next 12 months (ensure that they are SMARTA goals).
  • As the team leader/manager, you need to develop the objectives and KPIs for each team goal and put them into a plan for the year ahead. You can do this by using the template found here or use your own formatting (or that provided by your workplace for team performance plans).
  1. Refer to the team objectives that you identified above. Analyse the objectives and confirm that they meet the SMARTA criteria.
  • For each of the objectives in your plan design the KPIs. For each one, set team and individual goals, then
  • State the method/information you will use to measure whether the standard has been met.
  • Now that you have the team objectives and KPIs in your performance plan, the next step is to add in:
  1. The methods/processes that you will use,
  • The contributions and expectations from each team member,
  • Any risks or constraints (to achieve each of these),
  • Timelines,
  • Resources needed.
  • Based on the plan that you have developed, identify the methods that you will use to support your team and underneath the table in the plan, explain why you have selected each one to meet the expected performance outcomes in:
  • Performing the tasks in the most efficient and effective manner,
  • Developing and improving their knowledge and skills to perform the task.
  • Conduct a skills audit for all team members and include it in your plan and identify any training and development requirements needed for team members to be able to complete their own work plan and contribute fully to the team plan. To conduct the skills audit you can use the template found here, design your own or use a template provided by your workplace for skills audits.
  • Develop an individual performance/action plan for each of the 5 team members and clearly documents how each team member will achieve the goals in the team plan. To do this you will need to consider the skills audit you did and then:
  1. List all your team members; here you need to identify each team member by name and job title. Provide a short description of their role within the team and explain how they contribute to the team goals/objectives (where available you could include employee profiles here and/or attach PD’s),
  • List the contributions and expectations from each team member (i.e. what their role will be),
  • Compile a list of strengths and weaknesses for each team member,
  • Develop a draft performance/action plan (using the template here) for each team member (i.e. 5 draft plans) that shows the high-level activities for the next 12 months and highlights any risks or constraints,
  • Identify both formal and informal training and/or other development each team member requires.
  • Now that you have a draft copy of each team member’s performance/action plan, the next step is to discuss the team and individual plans with your team members to gain their buy-in and support as well as their feedback.

Individual plans may then need to be adjusted to incorporate each team member’s feedback and suggestions. You will need to review the purpose of the team plan and then discuss the team plan in detail, making sure to seek and obtain feedback from team members.

Then you will need to introduce the purpose and structure of the individual performance plans and how they link to the team plan.

To prepare for the role play you will need to ensure that you have:

  1. the five draft plans which includes any training and/or other development options required for the specific team member (based on their skills audit).
  • A completed agenda for the team meeting. You can complete the agenda using the template provided here.
  • Draft a group email to the five team members, notifying them of the meeting and its purpose etc. Ensure that your agenda is attached.

IN THE WORKPLACE

Keep a copy of the email sent and file it with your documents for later submission to your assessor. Your assessor will need to see evidence that you have notified your team (via email) of the team meeting and sent them the agenda. You will also need to provide the minutes of the meeting.

NOTE: You will need to video your meeting and submit the video (in MP4.video format) along with the rest of your assessment submission – at the completion of this assessment. Your video must comply with the requirements outlined here.

JOHN READINGS CASE STUDY

NOTE: You must submit the team email to your assessor as a pre-assessment submission at least three days prior to your simulation call. On the Assessments tab of this unit attach your documents in the Pre-Assessment Submission portal. Note that, although there are 5 members of the team, it is possible that not all will be able to attend the team meeting, so

you should plan for between 2-5 attendees. You will need to develop draft plans for all 5 team members.

Then, when you have completed all the activities listed above and are ready to conduct the team meeting to discuss the team and individual plans, you will need to make a booking with your assessor.

NOTE: At the commencement of this booked meeting, your assessor will advise you which team members are in attendance and who is absent.

Based on the selected method (workplace or case study) you must now meet with the team to review their performance. You must submit the minutes of this meeting.

For both options:

Review the Assessor Observation Report to ensure that you understand and address all of the criteria listed. During the role play the Assessor will complete the Observation Report to confirm the skills and knowledge being demonstrated.

Ensure that you address all criteria listed below and that your responses are clear, detailed and reflect the appropriate tone and vocabulary for the context.

The simulation with your Assessor or video must be 30 minutes in duration.

During the simulation call or video, you will need to:

  1. Highlight the key attributes of each team member
  • Discuss an area of improvement by the team
  • Demonstrate your ability to encourage the team
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills to encourage their participation
Text Box: When you are ready to complete this task, schedule a simulation call appointment with your Assessor using the link here.

Confirm their individual responsibilities as part of the team to achieve the desired outcomes

  • After the meeting you will need to incorporate the feedback/suggestions etc. from the attendees into the team and individual plans.
  • To assist your team members to understand team performance you have decided to create a short PowerPoint presentation and briefing notes to present at the next team meeting. Your presentation and participant briefing notes must be 5 – 7 slides and include information on:
    • Explain how group dynamics can support or hinder team performance
  • Outline strategies that can support team cohesion, participation and performance
  • Explain strategies for gaining consensus
  • Explain issue resolution strategies.
Text Box: Now that you have completed your first assessment task, save your work and continue on with Assessment Task 2.
