The Management Of Communication In Dominos Pizza

In this report, I introduce the management of communication in Domino's Pizza Enterprises Ltd through eight parts which is business demographics, organizational goals, organizational, management of knowledge resources, group dynamics, meeting management, stakeholders, and network.

INTRODUCE

Domino's Pizza is an international pizza delivery corporation headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States. Domino's menu features pizza, pasta, oven-baked sandwiches, wings, boneless chicken, salads, breadsticks, cheeses ticks, and a variety of dessert items. Domino's Pizza holds the exclusive master franchise rights for the Domino's brand and network in Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Principality of Monaco.

Business demographics

According to the Future Foundation Report (2003), on average, adults in the UK eat out and/or eat delivered/take-away meals around 80 times a year. It is means people lack of time to go to the story to buy the food. This report show that maybe we do not need too much shop in a certain area. Delivery will more meet the customers need. Then Domino’ pizza input more money on phone-call system. This report also indicates that more people will have access to interactive technologies, up from 70% to 90%. Now, we can easily get menu on the Domino’s pizza website.

Other methods the Domino’s pizza uses are:

--shop

--magazine and newspaper advertisements

--television commercial

2. Organisational goals

Organizational goals help define your organization, oriental your organization and give the guide of the organization. In an organization, somebody is leaders and others are follower. A common goal can help motivate members by communicating what the organization is striving for as well as providing a basis of recognizing accomplishments and successes. Organizations that set goals are more effective in recruiting members. Also when the leaders and followers have the common goals, the followers will empower the leaders as well as the leader will influences the followers. In this way, the efficiency of this organization must enhance fast. In December 2007, Domino's introduced a new slogan, "You Got 30 Minutes", alluding to the earlier pledge but stopping short of promising delivery in a half hour. Domino's Pizza had a guarantee that customers would receive their pizzas within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive the pizzas free. This is a good example for explain the important in communication of the aim between the different level in an organization. Thinking about that when the high level of the company want to give some pledges to the customs for increase the sale, just like time guaranty. But how much time is property; by communication with the different levels of the company they got the final goal. That is guarantee 30 minutes to the customs and they did it.

Organizational culture and ethics

As a successful company, it is necessary to pay back the society that we call it corporate social responsibility. Because the organizations harvest the benefits from the society. Furthermore the organizations always possess large amount of resources. They have more ability to undertake more responsibility. In 2001, Domino's launched a two-year national partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. That same year, the company stores in New York City and Washington D.C. provided more than 12,000 pizzas to relief workers following the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon. Through a matching funds program, the corporation donated $350,000 to the American Red Cross' disaster relief effort. [6] In 2004, Domino's began its current partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, participating in the hospital's "Thanks and Giving" campaign since it began in 2004, raising more than $1.3 million in 2006. This is the ethics of the company.

New Zealand is a country of immigration, the residences from the whole world. And every year, thousands of international students come and accept education here.
