Appendix 1: Scenario – e-Commerce strategy Background to scenario The BBQfun Board of Directors and the CEO have decided to implement an e-commerce strategy to maintain or increase market share and revenue and satisfy customer needs in line with company strategic directions. You have been hired as an external consultant to manage operational planning activities for BBQfun’s e-commerce strategy. Under the strategy, BBQfun would offer all products in an online store. Stock could be stored at no extra cost at existing stores. Customers would cover delivery costs. Currently, BBQfun has a website, but this website lacks e-commerce functionality. The website would need to be redeveloped to incorporate this functionality in line with relevant technical specifications. Existing infrastructure, such as office and store configurations, would need to be adapted to the new strategy. Additionally, assets, such as delivery vehicles would need to be acquired. New staff would need to be recruited and existing staff retrained or informed of the e-commerce strategy and associated operational and performance targets. All resourcing must be acquired and operations undertaken in accordance with relevant internal and external standards – legislation and codes of practice; intellectual property (IP) rights and responsibilities; and organisational policies and procedures. Preliminary approval has been given to amend existing budget and operational planning to incorporate this strategy. It is now 30 June 2018 and e-commerce operations are expected to be underway in one year and three months, by 1 October 2018. Scenario task As the external consultant, you will need to determine physical and human resourcing requirements. Review organisational documentation and undertake preliminary research on e- commerce. Consult with the following personnel to determine resourcing needs:
