Introduction
In this study, discussion on the management of a business and the activities related to
achievement of objectives and goals has been exhaustively explained. By taking the example of
an organization namely Fonterra Co-op Group, to understand the way they manage the functions
of the organization by taking proper measurements of the processes. Furthermore, the operation
plan for achieving the goals and objectives of own area of responsibility has also been discussed.
Moreover, explanation on monitoring systematic approach to improving organizational
performance has been given.
LO 1:
1.1) Evaluating the interrelationship between the different processes and
functions of the organization:
Organisation strictly deals with the management of work, not the performance of the work.
Process means the work performed by the organization and the organization projects the
effectiveness in completing the task by the concerned employee of that organization. On the
other hand, functions define the various departments of the organization which conducts
activities to be performed through the defined process (Benavides-Velasco et al. 2014). In this
study Fonterra Co-op Group, a multinational dairy co-operative organization has been taken to
understand their process and functions of operations. Since functions of an organization means
the various departments which take specific responsibility divided into specific departments.
Based on this certain processes are defined to carry on the activities related to each functional
department, which are discussed below, taking the example of Fonterra Co-op Group.

From the above table it can be illustrated that in order to meet the functional objective of an
organization, these mentioned processes have to be followed collectively to operate each and
individual functions. In this case, Fonterra has effectively conducted market function by
implementing determination, responsibility, coordination and proper allocation of a task.
Fonterra first planned an objective to do the survey in the market, then it has allocated the job
and its deadline among the different group of marketing executives, secondly subordinate and
superiors has collectively planned tactics to complete the marketing function.
1.2) Justifying the process of organization’s goals and objectives:
Contributing to the context of an understanding of the interrelationship between processes and
functions of an organization and methodologies followed to evaluate the interrelationship,
justifications have been outlined (Spofford Jr, Russell & Kelly, 2016). It has been observed that
market functions and production function are the two pivotal functions of this organization since
dairy industry requires conducting production function on a regular basis and to support the
production function market analysis is required to attain the idea of demand and supply and
customer preferences in the market. Fonterra has been implementing the organizational plans in
order to meet its objectives and goals, but the methodologies that have been taken into
consideration by Fonterra are discussed and justified. The organization should have done
qualitative survey rather than a quantitative survey to understand customers better by
approaching numbers of its product users and attain their opinion. This process could have been
done both online and offline, ensuring effective market function considering measured processes.
On the other hand, production function could have been conducted after achieving the desired
and final result of the market function, in order to avoid inefficiency and failure. Proper time
management and proper coordination are highly required in this process because production is
completely dependent on the efficiencies of labor and time taken by them.
1.3) Evaluating the output of the process and guilty gateways:
From the above analysis on methodologies applied to map the processes to the organization’s
goals and objectives, outputs have been evaluated. It has been observed that Fonterra has
implemented a certain process to achieve its goals of high production and selling unit and
objectives of carrying on the function with the right process. Nevertheless, in the context of
