2.2.2. Nestle Operations Performance

Broad stakeholder target shapes the backdrop every day to operations decision-making, and top management’s objectives provide a strategic framework, however strolling operations at an operational day-to-day level requires a greater tightly described set of targets. These are the five fundamentals ‘performance objectives’ known as the Quality, Speed, Dependability, Flexibility, Cost and they apply every day all varieties of operation.

(i) Quality products
Nestle especially focus on the quality conformance because it has many external and internal benefits. External benefits include enhancement of the product in the market and fewer customers complaints while internal benefits include prevention of error slowing down throughput speed, prevention from errors instigating internal untrustworthiness and low dependability and prevention from errors that lead to waste of time and efforts as well as save costs. The ultimate justification for a company is its potential to offer products that are appealing because of their quality, convenience, variety and price on products that can stand their ground even in the face of fierce opposition.

(ii) Flexibility and simplicity
From a strictly organizational factor of view, flexible, easy structures work best and excessively big units must be prevented every time feasible. In each respect, Nestle has a natural advantage. Although it is a big company, it is spread out over many countries and each of Nestle s factories has its own management and obligation and ease.
Nestle gives nutritious food that contributes to rural development through more than 500 locally adapted products supplied at low-priced costs. This technique improves vitamins for purchasers and further creates the cost for different stakeholders with the aid of supplying local employment possibilities. Through creating shared value Nestle is capable of setting up a competitive advantage through unmatched product and brand portfolio, unmatched R capability, unmatched geographic presence and the worldwide traditional present in the Nestle workplace. Each of these attributes each ensures shareholders favour Nestle products to other leading competitors. Nestle aims to ensure the company’s “actions today do not compromise the needs of tomorrow” (Nestle Management Report 2008, p. 14). This is achieved by running parallel to the goals of sustainable development.
