Online catering management is one of the many career options within the fast-paced world of hospitality. Workers in this profession oversee the daily operations of a variety of establishments in the food service industry. Read on to learn about this field's academic and career options.

Online catering and restaurant management can be an enjoyable field for customer service oriented individuals who enjoy doing something different every day. At a restaurant or catering company, a manager might be in charge of monitoring inventory and ordering supplies, hiring and training staff, working with chefs to create menus and dealing with customer issues. They should handle change and stress well, be organized and possess good problem-solving skills.

The next task is to identify problems. Problem analysis is a difficult task.

Let me give you an example.

Think of any problem you have (it could be traffic jams or lack of motivation in your work group or anything else) and state it in not more than 20 words. Write it down on a piece of paper.

It has been seen that most people would have used the words ‘we need to’ or ‘we want to’ in the statement of the problem. Can you see the common pitfall? You are not stating the problem but the possible


So to state a problem correctly, we should first be able to identify and define a problem.


A problem can be defined as an undesirable condition or situation that prevents a business or system from achieving its goals. For example, delays in delivering customer orders would be a problem because it would prevent the Sales system from achieving its goal of customer satisfaction.

Now that we know what a problem is, let us look at the difference between a problem and an opportunity. We have defined a problem as an undesirable condition or situation that prevent a business or system from achieving its goals.

An opportunity, on the other hand is a chance to improve the system even though the existing system is performing acceptably.

The best example of an opportunity is cost cutting. No matter how well a business may be performing, management will always be receptive to cost cutting. Cost –cutting, however, is not a problem but an opportunity to make the system more effective.

It is important to clearly understand the difference between the two because many users and some analysts get caught up in satisfying opportunities when they should be concentrating only on the solutions to problems.

Now that the problem has been defined and identified, the next thing to do would be to learn to identify the cause and the effect of a problem.


Identify the causes of the problem. What situation has led to the problem?


Identify the negative effects of the problem.


If you find that the effect is due to another problem, repeat steps 1 and 2
