After reads so many of definition and opinion about managements meaning from article,

internet, books and many more resources, our group members come out with our own opinion

about what we actually understand about management.

For us, we understood that management means a groups of people work and give opinion

together in order to achieve company goals and must have one leader to conduct this

group of people just to make sure in the end what ever happen, this group of people doings

must be in the right track which are to make sure company goals been achieved.

Based on what we understood about management, we bring in into our company by how we

going organized our company. Firstly like we mention early, in a group must have a leader to

lead others and in our company we have been conducted by our main CEO. And as like we all

understand management means a group of people work together so here in our company each

department have their own teams and been conducted by head of department of each


For us management is a way to make sure activity that done by employee should in right track

in order to achieve company goals and that why each of activities that have done must be

reported to head of department and CEO.


If we said that management is about a group of people work together to achieve company goals

then organization means individual that work with the other to achieved company goals

and this group or team we call as organization. To make it easier, our group understand that

organization means a group of people that need each other in their effort to achieve goals

and that group we call as organization.

In our company, I would like to said that we are is an organization because we work together

and every single decision making will involve almost everyone opinion and this is how we

bring organization concept in our business. We all also care in every individual opinion or

problems and try to connect everyone to make sure they know that each of them give a big

impact in company activities in order to achieve company goals.

Leadership is the action of leading people in an organization towards achieving

goals. Leaders do this by influencing employees behaviour in several ways. A leader

sets a clear vision for the organization, motivates employees, guides employees

through the work process and builds morale.

Leadership in The Sweet Room

The third function of management is leading. In this step, Miss Yasmin spends time

connecting with her employees on an interpersonal level. This goes beyond simply

managing tasks; rather, it involves communicating, motivating, inspiring, and

encouraging employees towards a higher level of productivity. Not all managers are

leaders. An employee will follow the directions of a manager because they have

to, but an employee will voluntarily follow the directions of a leader because they

believe in who he or she is as a person, what he or she stands for, and for the

manner in which they are inspired by the leader.

Setting a clear vision means influencing employees to understand and accept the

future state of the organization. A new worker may not believe or understand in a

particular job they have to do ordered by their secretary’s leader. Miss Yasmin will

influence the new employees to perform their works by explaining the vision and

the importance of their role in the outcome. New employees will be more apt to


Motivating employees means to find out enough about the needs and wants of

employees, giving them what they need and providing praise for a job well done.

Miss Yasmin used the hierarchy of needs five-stage model to motivating it’s

employees. For any workers who is staying far from home, it is difficult for them to

attend to the pastry shop. Miss Yasmin knows this and will communicate with her

staff to learn more about their needs and wants. It may be as simple as giving her

workers a sweet treat for their efforts.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Need

When guiding employees, it is important to define their role in the work process

and provide them with tools needed to perform and participate in their efforts along

the way. Some cakes are difficult to make it. Often, orders are to bake the only simple

cake that include only certain materials like put only little amount of flour to make

the cake. But, Miss Yasmin as a good leader will explain the order (how to make

the cake), provide the all the needed materials to assists her workers if they run

into a problem.

Building morale involves pulling everyone together to work towards a common

goal. Let’s face it – so many order of cakes and breads are stressful. Sometimes

workers placed in high-stress situations. This can cause the employees to lose their

focus or, worse yet, shut down emotionally. Miss Yasmin will let her employees

know how much their work is appreciated. A special surprise for her employees can

burn the employees’ spirits.


The Sweet Room always influences our subunits and members to behave in ways that lead to

the attainment of organization goals and objectives. In order to ensure the satisfaction of the

products and services among our customers, plus become the most popular pastry shop in

Kedah, the managers use several approaches in improving processes, products, services, and

the culture in which we work. Our approaches involves all employees and managers in

continual improvement. Managers use strategy, data and effective communications to integrate

the quality discipline into the culture and activities of the company.

1. Employees

For the first approach, our focus is on the employees itself. Trainer will develop a process to

educate employees during new employee orientation and communicate the mission, vision and

values of the company. All the employees need to know how and what they do is tied to The

Sweet Room’s strategy and objectives. Managers will ensure that employees understand where

the company is headed (our vision), what it hopes to accomplish (mission) and the operational

principles (values) that will steer our priorities and decision making. Managers always

communicate with employees, so they are well-informed about the company and managers also

encourage them to ask questions and offer feedback. Effective communication could creates

trust and encourages our employees to assume ownership of the contributions the make as

valued members of the company. Managers also have to look for ways to make sure that all

internal processes are standardized and that employees receive the training to understand the


2. Managers

The Sweet Room is

very concern about our

staff performance

especially managers.

Thus, managers need

to focus on the things

that help move the

company forward and become the customers’ first choice. It is important to have SMART

goals, so there is a strategy and timeline for achieving targets. Our targets are the things that

affect the cost of production and increased revenues. Targeting these indicators and monitoring

them monthly will provides a quick visual for how successful our company is, and keeping

goals at the forefront, is the best way to ensure we are achieved. Managers should find the

alternative to reduce the cost of production, and yet still emphasizes the quality of the raw

material in order to gain more profit.

3. Customers

Our company has our own customers. We understand that the key of an organization whether

the company is succeed or not are the customers itself. Thus, The Sweet Room always

acknowledging that customers would always be our priority to fulfil their satisfaction. Their

satisfaction includes both the quality of the product and the services provided by the employees.

To know how well customers are being treated is by simply asking the question. Managers can

create a structured process to solicit feedback from each customer in an effort to identify what

is important to them. Some organizations often make the mistake of thinking they know what

is important to customers and ask the wrong survey questions. This type of feedback is obtained

through customer focus groups. From the feedback, The Sweet Room can improve our product

quality and also our services to ensure that the customers are satisfied with our company.

4. Product

Besides, to become the most

popular pastry shop in Kedah

and help customers achieve

their satisfaction, The Sweet

Room always improve the

quality of product especially

in baking cakes. A competent manager always aware of the changes in environment and also

in economic which could affect the company. So, in line with the changes, managers should

do some research and observation about customers’ favourite choice in choosing our products.

For example, lately most of the customers prefer cheese-based cake. In order to ensure that the

customers satisfied with our product and always choose The Sweet Room rather than the other

company, managers need to make sure the

employees can provide the most-tasty

cheese-based cake to the customers such as

Red Velvet Cheese and Blueberry Cheese.


In the end of our company report, we kindly to state that all of us work so hard in order to

make everything composed starting from how we share about our company background

and activity that we have been run in our business. We also prepare POLC (planning,

organization, leading and controlling) just to make sure our company activities being in the

right track in order to achieved our company goals. Each of us play our own part very well

and also we all follow the management and organization in order to make our company run

in a smooth way.
