Current organisational structures and human resource capabilities will most likely require improvement to meet increasing business demands. Conduct an analysis of the current situation as well as growth projections for the company to identify the key organizational and human resource issues that must be addressed if these growth projections are to be realized. Then develop strategies with key performance measures and targets to address these key issues. Areas to be addressed typically include (for each item, show structures now and for the near future):
Board of Directors-

Nicole is in charge of volunteer recruitment, food supply donations and dining room service with a word of prayer each time and time to minister to the needs of the heart for anyone who comes.
Jane Doe has been a chef for the last 25 years and has a desire to feed the body and soul of anyone who comes.Jane is in charge of menu planning, dietary balance and the once monthly nutrition class.
John Doe has been a jack of all trades his entire life and loves to dedicate himself to fulfilling the needs of others. John is in charge of set-up, clean-up and safety for our guests and staff.
Our future prep cook will bring to the table the ability to be a team player, multitask, and have some sous chef experience. We expect to see the guest numbers increase at different seasons of the year and expect the need for additional help to follow.
