I’ve been on an educational hiatus since I completed Foundations 3100; I’ve yet to enroll in the next course in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at VCC, but I’ve not been idle. A big part of my assigned job at Okanagan Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates for the past 5 years has been coordinating and scheduling the surgical staff. I’ve been so busy with my clinical responsibilities that another coworker had to be appointed the task of scheduling (a very important job: staff = production). Much to my chagrin, my replacement decided to use “designated shift scheduling software,” even though the Google© software that I had been using was, in my opinion, extremely effective; none-the-less it is human nature to try to “re-invent the wheel.”
I’m frustrated by this decision, but not bitter. Things were going so well with the staff scheduling that no one questioned that this was because the software was so supportive: a “well-oiled machine” so to speak. Anyhow, I’ve included the open letter to Google that I wrote just before I relinquished my scheduling responsibilities with the intention of helping others 🙂
Thanks for letting me share!
