Do you work one day a week for no production and profit?

Do you work one day a week for no production and profit? A study by the Levin Group Data Center shows that practices that are experiencing a new level of scheduling problems and breakdown are most likely not following strict scheduling policies. Practices tend to go through ups and downs in regard to following policies because they begin to make exceptions for certain situations and the exceptions tend to grow. When you start to experience a scheduling breakdown, review your scheduling policies and encourage everyone to follow them to the letter.

Before committing to a major expenditure, get competitive bids from different sources.
