Efficient Shift Scheduling

Concept to Implementation

This course is design to give you an understanding of how you can create an efficient shift schedule from concept to implementation.

This course is applicable to anyone in an organisation that runs shift operations and would like to improve their understanding of shift scheduling. It includes:


  • Workload Analysis: Understand your workload and how to convert it to staffing levels.
  • Resource Analysis: Understand your current resources and learn how to utilise them more efficiently.
  • Introduction to Shift Pattern Design: Learn about using different length shifts, rotating individual or team shift operations.
  • Introduction to Shift Management: Learn about the most common problems that will stop your shift operation matching your workload and how to overcome them.
  • Holiday Management: Learn how to plan your team’s holidays so that they minimise disruption to the operation while ensuring your shift workers can take their holidays in a fair way at the time of their choice.
  • Proactive Absence Management: Minimise the disruption to your operation and learn how to plan your absence cover.
  • Negotiations with Staff: Learn how to introduce a new shift schedule to your organisation.
  • Migration Planning: With any change, you need to migrate people from the old to the new. When you are moving people this change is personal. Learn how to minimise the disruption to your staff while maintaining the operation.
  • Checklist: Ensure your shift schedule runs efficiently with our checklists. Everything from concept, implementation to day to day operations.
