The paper "Building Strong Quality-Driven Culture in a Hotel in Melbourne" is a worthy example of a case study on management. It is the duty of every manager to come forth with different strategies that would ensure overall organizational success. The strategies are as a result of the observations that are employed in organizations and institutions. The strategies ensure that the current market is understood and appreciated. The overall success of the organization or institution relies heavily on a strong quality-driven culture (Monin 2008). This paper aims to look at one local organization in Melbourne.

It will concentrate on how it conducts its activities and how it can make them better. This will ensure that it is possible for them to ensure that they have a very strong organizational culture. This culture will pave the way for the incorporation of the best possible practices. The practices will definitely ensure customer satisfaction and the general improvement of standards at each and every level. It will concentrate on the hotel industry. This is the perfect example of the service industry (Wheatley 1998). The author as the manager of the hotel has the duty of ensuring that the organizational culture is created.

This is by ensuring that all the negative aspects that retard strong organizational growth are dealt with. This is to create a forum for the strong organizational culture to be created. Hotel W Melbourne is a very famous hotel. This is because it is located in the city as the only 19th-century  hotel in Melbourne. It has very strong ties with historical activities in the country. This is one of the reasons as to why it has very strong ties with the elite in the region.

Many of the national and international guests have resided in this hotel. This is during the time that they were in the country (Cabrera & Barajas 2001). This is as they aim to deal with any national or international issues that they have to deal with. It is a representation of all the aspects of the Victorian architectural designs that were used in the country in the past.
