Task 1.3 Question and answer

  • Answer all the questions.

Q1: What sources of information did you use to develop the work schedule and jobs checklist? Name the documents, personnel or other sources you referred to.

Q2: What factors influenced how you sequenced and prioritised the tasks to be completed on your work schedule?

Q3: What factors influenced who you allocated tasks to when developing your work schedule?

Q4: What factors influenced how you sequenced and prioritised tasks on the jobs checklist?

Q5: Briefly describe how a work schedule and jobs checklist can help you and your team manage your own speed, timing and productivity during preparation and production processes.

A job checklist and a work schedule help you plan, prioritise and organise your tasks so you can have several jobs underway at the same time or complete preparation tasks for multiple dishes at the same time. This is called multi-

tasking.

Q6: Briefly describe how a jobs checklist helps you:

  • organise and prepare food efficiently
  • coordinate your own work across multiple tasks
  • respond to operational challenges
  • prepare dishes in a timely manner for customers.

A jobs checklist helps you plan, prioritise and organise your tasks so you can have several jobs under way at the same time or complete preparation tasks for multiple dishes at the same time.

It assists with multi - tasking as you know exactly what task you need to complete next.

This means you are able to make dishes ready in good time for the customers

If anything is wrong, you still know what needs to be completed after you have dealt with the

issue.

Q7: How did you decide who to delegate tasks to?
