Figure 8
Course Abstract
Each shift has new surprises but following a Figure 8 will help your managers handle the unexpected effectively, without losing focus on their regular duties. By dividing their restaurant into sections and then making regular passes through each section, managers can increase efficiency and productivity. Managers will learn the importance of dealing with issues immediately, how to recognize when a manager’s leadership skills are needed most, and how to prioritize and resolve common issues.
