5.0 Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary of Findings

All organization strive to achieve positive results, well through out strategy is vital to their success. The key to organizational survival is the ability of such organization to know how to manage its store successfully. This is done by effective control and monitoring of stock in the store.

It obviously stated that almost all firms operate in an era of unprecedented as the strategies frame work is carried out in dynamic and less predictable over all environments. Organization must implement with intelligence and experience less predictable outcome could make sensible prediction and develop ratio scenario.

5.2 Recommendation

Vitamalt should pay more attention to the department so that the firm will not die a sudden death due to mismanagement and the company’s non challant attitude towards the department.

5.3 Conclusion

This is the following conclusions have been reached:

  1. The store staff should be allow to go for training so that they can easily know when to reduce high cost of acquisition of materials by passing the information to the purchasing staff.
  2. Stock taking in an organization should be implemented in the organization in order to avoid under shocking and under stocking of raw materials in an organization.
  3. Store department should be paid special attention to because it is the bed rock of producing organization. It is a market fact that 75% of the organization resources are in stock from there, special attention must be given to the department in order to enhance continuous production.

In a producing organization determine the rate of their raw materials consumption and the volume and quality of the product realized the need to embark on effective strategies in an organization.

Strategies are accepted or rejected in the basis of whether manager can precise about the HOW as well as the WHAT of their staff about store management.

In order for a firm to be able to manage its store department effectively both the head office and either branches across the nation, so that the organization will not under stock or overstock raw materials. There is a need for effective running and management of the organization store departments, headed by the store manager who formulate polices for the running of the store and make sure the goals is achieved.

In the addition, the store department should be separate from either purchasing or account because store management deserved a skilled man in field of store management. It covers very wide range compared to other department in the organization.

Again based on the fact that the store management have been strategies effectively. It makes simple and easy method of issue and receipt in an organization.

Finally, since faulty implementation of strategies do not enhance strategies for effective store management the store manger(s) should not introduce unfruitful strategies to the store in order to avoid the untimely collapse of such organization.
