Learning Goal: I’m working on a communications question and need an explanation

Learning Goal: I’m working on a communications question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.This case acts as a Capstone project for this class. It will need you to look at what you have learned in this entire course and develop an operations strategy for the company. You will be acting as consultants again and prepare a report to Ms. McKenzie. Some questions Ms. Mackenzie is bothered with are listed in the first page and then in the conclusion of the case. You do not need to answer these questions one by one, but rather prepare a report that captures the answers to these questions. You can also use the questions I listed below as guidance when putting together your report: 1) What are the most important operating and strategic issues facing Fresh Connections (FC)?2) Which segment(s) of the prepared food business do you think is most attractive for FC?3) What choices must FC make in developing an operations strategy? What is the effect of complexity on FC’s operations?4) How will growth impact FC’s operations?5) What capabilities should FC emphasize in its strategy? When you are preparing your report pay attention to couple of things. First, this is a famous Harvard Business School case and there is a lot of info on the web on it. If you can find it, so can I. If I feel – even a little bit – that you plagiarized, you will receive an F for the assignment.Second, when you are preparing your report I do not want to see sentences that start with “We feel like …”. I am not interested in your feelings, at least not in this case. Do your analysis. Do your research. And then give me recommendations that are based on logical results of your research and analysis.Third, you probably can write pages and pages for this case. But I am not going to live forever, and hence don’t want to spent my days reading reports. So, we are limiting your reports to 1,000 words (that translates to approximately 5 pages).Please include references if you do research (references are not included in the 1,000 word limit). Show your work. If you use Excel, submit the excel file along with your report.
