How to Manage your Department to Meet your Goals
In order to accomplish the goals desired, you will need to have a good strategic and tactical plan. You will need a basic roadmap on where you are now, and where you are going. You would also need to determine the best way on how to get from point A to point B. Finally, you would need to make sure you have the means to get to your final destination.
For example, if providing excellent customer service were your main objective, you would need to come up with a strategy to make sure the customers are satisfied in every way. This is where department management and organisation comes into play.
Things to Consider…
One might need to organise the department differently to achieve the goal such as setting up a Tier 1 group to handle the simple and quick calls, and a Tier 2 group to handle the difficult longer lasting calls. There would need to be a decision who would go into each group and where they would sit. You would have to have the calls routed differently. There is a necessity to direct the staff to follow the process and monitor the performance to make sure all functions are running smoothly and in a coordinated fashion. You also at the same time need to take into consideration the costs associated in structuring your department while staying within budget. These are the kinds of the decisions that come with structured planning and organising. How you deal with these kinds of decisions are a big part of being a successful manager.
In this guide, we will look at a model that can help you fully understand and improve your organisation, and ways to set up your department to its optimum performance to be able to meet any goals or objectives that may come your way.
