Description of Two Companies
This section will now provide analysis of case studies of two companies where diversity was present in business operations and how it was managed from my perspective as an employee. Manufacturing Institute Company This is an institution that offers wide range of consultancy services in areas of manufacturing industry. Its areas of specialization are initiatives that seek to incorporate ideas aimed to promote product sales, undertake marketing and offer training solutions to clients.
One such case required the institute to generate program software for enterprises that would be compatible with similar software’s within the web domain that will permit web hosting (Buckley, 2007, p. 1). The manufacturer institute was involved in bidding for a project implementation and was selected due to their experience and diversity in services range in which they specialized in. This strategy of dealing with varied services ensured they remained relevant to most clients. The project involved developing a product that was user friendly, reliable and easy to operate and host in a web domain.
It implemented the project in phases. The budget costing of the project was the initial stage; it also set up parameters for which the project will be based. The second stage involved offering training services through modules and related logistics of instructors and materials, and eventually implementation of the project (Buckley, 2007, p. 2). Toomey Opticar Ltd Toomey Opticar Ltd is a car hire company that deals in contracting of transport services to companies’ employee. It aim is at providing car hire services that are tailor made to company’s need in order to pass the benefit of cost saving to clients.
The company is involved in structuring services and advertisements towards this end (Wynn, 2008, p. 3). Organization policy The wide ranges of consultancy and product services that are available enable the company to retain many clients with varied product requirement. These consultancy and product services therefore limit overall business risk at the Manufacturing Institute (Buckley, 2007, p. 1). Toomey Opticar does the same by tailoring their services schemes along the needs of their clients.
This enables to service company clients across the board (Wynn, 2008, p. 2). Training The Manufacturing Institute place great value to training as indeed one of their product services is training. Training is offered through methods to the personnel, for example through virtual instructor-led training (vILT) which refers to e-learning (Howard, 2006, p. 1). In Toomey Opticar, company personnel such as drivers and other support staff recruitment and training is the responsibility of the company (Wynn, 2008, p. 6).
Business benefits due to this venture resulted to improved reliability and reducing bureaucracy in companies, adoption of international accepted business practices, accurate financial records and return on company investment through profits (Buckley, 2007, p. 1). Toomey Opticar through this scheme is able to streamline it cost and also enable the clients to realize reduction in cost in areas of transport, vehicle maintenance and human resource. This arrangement also separates legal liability of each company (Wynn, 2008, p. 5).
