  10. 10. Plan 3. Build consensus & alignment <ul><li>Create the work plan (without constraints): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Inventory and prioritize area types </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inventory current cleaning tasks and frequencies; compare with goals and note gaps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify and prioritize new program tasks and frequencies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Calculate labor hours and staffing requirements </li></ul></ul>This results in a hypothetical plan. Use this to refine your goals and make choices.
  11. 11. Exercise <ul><li>Question: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How many FTEs are needed to… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Perform Task A in 105K sq. ft. of a 300K sq. ft. school </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Time per task = 5 minutes / 1,000 sq. ft. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Frequency = 4 times weekly </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Average daily productive minutes per custodian = 420 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Days worked per week = 5 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Answer: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>105K sq. ft. / 1K sq. ft. (per task) = 105 units </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>105 X 5 (min. per task) = 525 minutes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>525 X 4 (times weekly) = 2,100 minutes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2,100 / 5 (days worked weekly) = 420 minutes per day </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>420 / 420 = 1 FTE </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Plan 3. Build consensus & alignment <ul><li>Create alternative work plans (within budget constraints): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Compare # of FTEs in your budget with # of FTEs to reach your goals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify high-cost, low-priority areas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify high-cost, low-priority tasks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce cost by reducing task frequency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Work your way up (lowest to highest) priority areas & tasks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Improve productivity with better equipment </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Plan 3. Build consensus & alignment Task Treatment in Low Priority Areas to Maintain Budget Task Cost Task Priority Increase / Maintain Reduce / Eliminate Eliminate / Reduce Increase Productivity Reduce or eliminate low priority tasks in low priority areas to maintain your budget.
