Use different restaurant spreadsheets for each group of employees.Employees working in the night shift should have different spreadsheets for day shift employees. Employees working in the kitchen should have a separate spreadsheet from those working on the floor as servers, bartenders and cashiers. Employees working at-will or part-time should have a different spreadsheet from those working full-time at the restaurant. 2. Do not be afraid to rotate. Rotation may seem impractical at first because employees unfamiliar with a new set of skills will most likely work slow and commit errors more often as they learn the ropes. However, pairing a veteran with a learner and scheduling the rotation during dull business hours will pay off during peak periods when you need an extra hand.
The spreadsheet was introduced back in the 1980s and evolved into a complex program, but with the right experience it can be an effective tool for estimating large or small projects. Standalone programs work fine for estimating large projects; however they cannot estimate all structural elements of the project, such as, concrete, reinforcement, form-work, excavation, and back-fill at one time. Because of this restriction, contractors are forced to develop spreadsheet calculators ensuring bids were covering all required disciplines in their bids to ensure correctness. Construction bids missing important materials or a labor calculation is the number one reason companies incur large loses on projects they would generally have slim profits designed into the bid.
XL Spreadsheet lunacy in IT? It still amazes me to learn how many companies are managing their IT networks using XL Spreadsheets. This is either a compliment to Microsoft for creating a powerful spreadsheet application that serves many purposes or is it a sign of lunacy on behalf of IT? Many businesses still rely on using XL spreadsheets to keep tabs on their IT infrastructure, be that running an IT Help desk or auditing their network. Is this just a case of the old school verses technical phobia or is it just budget conscious IT departments? Whats wrong with the good old spreadsheet anyway one might ask? Why be sucked into using technology for technology sake?
