The SWOT analysis identifies the main risks as: 1) Competition from another gourmet shop opening; 2) Economic downfall; 3) Kathy’s health; 4) Seismic damage from earthquake; and 5) Weather conditions causing damage. For purposes of similarities 4 and 5 are combined in this problem statement.
Competition from another gourmet shop opening
A primary concern is the owner’s health in every business and measures must be taken to protect the owner from ill health. The facts show Kathy is over working herself by taking on too many tasks personally and working too many hours each week. The solution is to schedule a 40-hour week as with any other employee, delegate tasks to other managers and to herself. Kathy should oversee these tasks, and build a team management system to brainstorm ideas for the future.
