ASSIGNMENT CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES
 

The Negresco hotel had identified errors in the purchasing department, with repercussions on service quality, particularly in the restaurant. Within this context, the hotel’s management wanted to obtain a very specific analysis of the department’s organisation, in order to identify the origin of the dysfunction and to rectify it once and for all. At the end of the first audit phase, the hotel mandated IE TCH to assist in implementing the cycle’s operating procedures.
