Contingency plans and risk assessments
operate a restaurant in recent society full of uncertainty there must be proper planning known as contingency planning to ensure that the risk that Surround the organisation while it operates in full phases does not impact much. Following structure present the list map that may hamper the operation management of the organisation the “Cravings” (Sadgrove, 2016).
Probability of Occurrence
From the above Risk Probability Map, there is clear evidence regarding the probability of occurrence and impact of raised up on the organisation that is to be newly formed named as “Craving”.
Management challenge in the organisation the craving that is to be presented in society seems to have a high probability of occurrence but a low impact of risk over it general work condition. This is why it is clearly place in the very first quadrant of the risk map where the relation between probability of occurrence and impact of risk is presented (Brink, 2017).
When discussing about high chance of occurrence we see that Customers dissatisfaction is kept in second quadrant. We observe from the above map that the probability of occurrence of the problem in the organisation is high and their impact over the organisational work if occurs will have high concern. Food poisoning and insurance malfunction have low chance of occurrence but have low and high impact over the organisation respectively (Brustbauer, 2016).
In order to ensure proper contingency plan for mitigating the management challenge that could occur in the organisation the management team of “Cravings” must ensure a democratic format of leadership where every organisational worker has their own se and decisions are taken in accordance to the benefit of every management work in the organisation (Negnevitsky, Nguyen and Piekutowski, 2015).
Considering the effect of customer dissatisfaction proper receptionist and waiter must be appointed who have communication skills and sense of understanding the views of the customers when they face any issue.
Plans for managing the new business or the growth opportunity and Operational plans
For the constant chance of making the organisation success in long run it is essential that the management must be prepared for the challenges that have to come in future.

With the premises being presented to students there will be requirement of Wi-Fi and small indoor games to make them feel comfy. There will be soothing music around the cafeteria (Wright, Zeltmann and Griffin, 2017).
In requirement of the equipment for the cafeteria the Cravings, coffee machine, grill machine, cooking utensils, liquid gas furnace, table, chairs and air condition are required in the very best and possible time.
Legal or regulatory requirements

Keeping the organisational financial is safe required proper accounting system that could have institute for daily good practice of accounting work in easy method. Insurance also falls under regulatory requirement for an organisation to safeguard them from unfortunate period (Jacques et al. 2016). Getting in touch with the local Council for the approval of developing an organisation in the society is one of the most important aspects that falls on the legal or regular requirement. The questions and the guideline presented by the local Council of the society help in guiding the management to form a new organisation with proper safeguard aspect.
