The Marriot Corporation

A look at Six Sigma and the 7S McKinsey Framework

The Marriott Hotel Chain is a global brand offering resort and luxury hotel furnishings at popular vacation and business destinations. As the Events & Kitchen Management for global operations, my responsibility includes the overseeing of banquet operations including the process management of the cooking and serving efficiency. I receive complaints from hosts and others that contract our services. Whether the meal is cold or late, or if the order was wrong, there are a number of complaints that I must address as a leader and business manager.

The Event and Kitchen operations must flow seamlessly as an efficient engine that everyone loves because no one notices that it is running. When demand on the system steps up, so does performance. This can be said when the event is in full swing and drinks are being served at….

Hotel Management
Assessment and ecommendation to esolve Interpersonal Communication Problems at the Griffith Hotel

Problem Identification

Transcript of Ideal Conversation

The Griffith Hotel is a relatively new luxury hotel established in Tel Aviv. The hotel has some experienced and knowledgeable front desk staff, but is suffering an increasing level of complaints from customers regarding the attitude of the staff. An examination of the problems indicates that communication within the department is poor. Problems start with the department manager, Simon, who takes an autocratic approach, demanding compliance rather than working with motivating staff. The autocratic/commanding approach of the department manager filters through the hierarchy. The dissatisfaction and "jobsworth" attitude of many of the employees can be explained through the application of social exchange theory. The employees gain relatively few rewards for a high level of input, so display only a minimal level of commitment to their job tasks. Cross-cultural communication also appears to be problematic,….

And talent management will become even more important as companies in the United States attempt to staff properties thousands of miles away from their headquarters (2009 industry outlook: Tourism, hospitality & leisure, 2009). To confront the high turn over challenge, hotel management must ensure that their benefits support their company's vision, mission and values (Cavallari, 2008). Hotels are also going to need to be more creative in their approach to benefits, concentrating not only on the basics such as health insurance, vacation policies, and 401K plans, but also considering training and development, quality of life support and other non-basic benefits (Cavallari, 2008).
Conclusion

True, 2008 was not a good year for the hotel industry and 2009 is expected to be even worse. However, brighter times are ahead if hotel management responds to consumer needs. On this front, the two most obvious opportunities are consumers in emerging global economies and the Generation….

Sunmee Choi & Anna S. Mattila (Cornell Hotel & Restaurant Administration Quarterly): The impact that a hotel can have on customers by sharing a frank and specific list of pricing practices ("revenue management" [RM]) is significant, according to a peer-reviewed journal article published in 2005. Choi & Mattila conducted a study of 120 travelers (all waiting for flights from Reagan National Airport in ashington, D.C.), providing them with three distinctly different scenarios regarding a hotel's rate-management policies. The result of the research determined that the scenario with the most detailed information on hotel pricing was preferred by far more customers than the other two. Looking deeper into these results, the authors report that while merely providing information on the varying rates offered by the hotel improved customer perceptions of the hotel, which alone did not "...improve customers' perceptions of fairness." hat did improve perceptions of fairness in the minds of….

With the rising growth of hotel business, it is important that the management techniques must include and adopt the changes. In a lot of cities, the business of hotels has been re-built with addition of latest technology (Rutherford & Fallon, 2007).

The various companies within the business understand the different aspects of motivating, training and recruiting the staff to make sure that the customers receive the best service from them. The business of hotels is difficult in the sense that they cannot easily achieve something different and unique that would give them an advantage over their competitors. Thus, the success of a hotel business is highly based on personal interactions and engagement of the employees with the customers to take….

No wonder cable companies who practice this approach to optimizing service calls run the risk of disgruntled, dissatisfied customers. What cable companies need to do is take the opposite approach and assume that existing service calls, in aggregate, can take over 20% longer than expected, thereby making sure there is enough time to exceed the expectations of customers. Only by a consistently defined strategy of exceeding expectations can any service company overcome a mediocre or deficient reputation for responsiveness (Johnston, 2004). The bottom line is that the concept of efficiency has to be redefined as taking whatever time is necessary to delight customers first, and then move onto to the next appointment. Merely overcomitting and rushing through service promises, as is the current approach of cable companies, leads to a major problem with their reputations.

In order to capitalize fully on the market segment of travelers in search of convenience rather than a particular destination or certain luxuries, affordability and a consistent level of basic quality should be emphasized in both ventures. In addition, the separation of the hotel and restaurant branding is desirable in order to promote the greatest revenue from both ventures. In keeping with the convenience and quality aspects of both business ventures, and the need for consistency and careful management control without extensive owner oversight, Holiday Inn has been selected for the hotel brand and management company, and Chili's has been selected as the brand and operator of the restaurant. This combination should provide the revenue and profitability that the owners are seeking without engaging in necessarily expensive attempts to increase occupancy rates.
Profitability in the hospitality industry can be more difficult to come by than might be imagined, but it….
