Unit reference number: F/504/2235
Level: 4
Credit value: 6
Guided learning hours: 33

Unit aim

This unit has been devised to assess learners’ ability to recognise the difference between leadership and management and the impact that these two different concepts have when applied to hospitality contexts. The unit also requires learners to demonstrate knowledge of a range of different managerial and behavioural theories.

Unit introduction

The ability to manage activities and conditions in the workplace, allocate work to others, set targets and implement plans to meet organisational and customer requirements is an essential management function. As a manager, the ability to lead, train and monitor team performance is crucial to the success of business operations.

Learners need to be aware of the range of management styles that can be adopted, how to set measurable targets for different types of team and the methods used to measure team performance. Learners will understand the principles of team building, how teams can be managed effectively and how to look for ways to continuously improve to meet product and service quality objectives in the workplace.

Learners will explore how managerial style can influence managerial behaviour, investigating situations that might require different management styles to maximise effectiveness in hospitality contexts.
