Dilmun Hill Student Farm History
TA: Rachel Ruttan
The organization that I will be looking at for this assignment is the Dining Services of Union College. Before
coming to Cornell I worked for Union Dining for two years, and therefore am very familiar with their structure and procedures.
organization in question, Union Dining, was very good at making sure work didn't get "backed up". If each person did their
assigned work, then the system rarely met with any problems. Lines always moved quickly, and waste disposal (a big issue for
dining services) rarely interfered with other parts of the system (ie: garbage was taken care and utensils kept clean without
other processes having to stop and wait for that to happen).
The organizational design that helped that success was the
successful division of labor. Tasks were specialized by location, so that people were not running into each and getting in
each others way. Instead each worker had one job and a space to do it in. Also, for people to come in on different shifts,
each dining location had very similar procedures and materials so that any worker within the system could come to work at
each location and be able to fit into the routine without having to take time becoming familiar with a new set of processes.
Also, the bureaucratic structure that helped to enable these successes were the implementation of localized managers for
each location, supervisors beneath them, and finally student workers. What this did was create a system where the student
workers could ask the supervisors specific questions about procedures and immediate issues as well as receive constant feedback
on their job performance and therefore improve on the spot, and be able to turn to the localized supervisors for advice. It
also encouraged a positive work environment through the close relationships between supervisors and student employees.
the organization did poorly was adapt to any sudden/unforeseen changes to the system. For example, if an oven or dishwasher
broke, there was no good alternative system to take over while repairs were being made. And as such, a small breakdown anywhere
in anyone of the organization's locations would have an impact on all the locations, because the site of the system-breakdown
would be overwhelmed and whatever duties they would usually have taken care of were then distributed to the other locations,
those of which were often unprepared for the increase in work. The other problem- which seems a polar opposite- was labor
that was so specialized that it was inefficient, in that two or three employees were doing the work that one employee could
The bureaucracy fails here in that the system is badly planned and coordinated. So that there are no
alternative routes to take should the norm prove impossible for some period of time and also that other locations that are
effected by a breakdown in the system cannot/do not coordinate to deal with the increased workload effectively.
to better support Union Dining's mission to satisfy the needs of the College student body, there needs to be an increase in
contingency planning and preparations for possible breakdowns within the existing system. There also needs to be a system
of external review for the specific locations to ensure that labor is not being divided to the point of inefficiency.
