We just decided we may need to plan to run a second shift of production. This means training and staffing which is scary because it's taken me 6 months to get the crew I have so well understanding what they are to do and how to do it properly. I have a lot of trust in them and they can be mostly left on their own and even with a strong language barrier, we communicate well.
My concerns are what if none of my current staff is willing to work the second shift so it's all new people? What about my role as Dir of Ops (serving as Production Manager) how do I make up for my coverage? What if the new staff also has a strong language barrier and my bilingual people are working the first shift so I don't have a good liaison?
