“Perfection is a road not a destination.”
A perfect plan does not exist. As we discussed at the beginning, change is the only constant. Therefore your plan may be perfect but only for a moment since something will change around you that will make you change that plan (and it is no longer perfect since you have to change it).
The same reasoning applies at any level. Your scheduling procedures may be perfect in a planner’s point of view, but they may have to change because of competition or changing demographics around the business.
Hopefully, this series was not a cure for insomnia. Its goal was mainly to educate on the importance of scheduling and the impact it can have on any business.
A few reminders on what’s important to remember:
- The supervisors creating and updating the schedule are spending your money to run your shop
- Scheduling is a key element for employee satisfaction
- Any strategic decision has the potential to impact the schedule; test the decision on a schedule before writing it in stone
 Korean proverb. I heard it for the first time in the movie “Remo Williams – the Adventure Begins” in 1985; I guess it stuck with me…
