It will find the link between lack of focus in customer service and the current decentralised structure. 3 and 4. The results of secondary research and the methodologies that Im going to use It is impossible to analyse Tesco Hatch End branch issues without taking into account the biggest picture of the company. Tesco had to move from a centralised structure to a decentralised one thats no doubt in that. Empowering managers had a positive effect on adapting to local customer needs and wants, and also had a good effect on employees motivation. http//www.retailwire.com/discussion/16083/tescos-sir-terry-rails-against-centralized-management. However the negative effects on moving to a decentralised structure havent been study enough in Tesco case. Giving to much liberty to managers and not maintaining a thigh control may result in a low output quality of work, when staff is not controlled properly they could try to avoid work, resulting in bad quality customer service. See the following example.

I worked in one of the new flagship Superstores. We were well dressed, inspected, trained in how to speak to the customer pleasantly (eye contact and smile), conduct customers to locations in the store rather than just telling them where to find things, apologise for keeping customers waiting at the checkout, arrange products on the shelf with the labels facing uniformly forward etc. The only place you get that effort and care now is at Waitrose. My local Tesco contains shabbily dressed and disinterested staff, dismal service, untidy store layout, stuff piled high. But they are cladding the outside with bits of unfinished wood to try to make it look better, oh well. Even if Tesco is rated as one of the worst supermarket it has the biggest market share of all supermarkets in UK part of the cause being opening new local branches, where people find easier to shop.

Unit 6 Research Project - Report
When comparing frame relay with ATM, (asynchronous transfer mode), as a layer 2 protocol you are comparing packets with cells and two technologies that will both be obsolete soon. In regards to frame relay, it is a slower, more careful, error-correcting X.25 packet based technology. Frame Relay differs from X.25 in several ways though. It is a much simpler protocol that works at the data link layer rather than the network layer. It implements no error or flow control…
