Knock-on effect

The less notice you give someone to do something, the less time they can spend doing other things (so they are available to do the things you want them to do, presumably because they do them best/quickest/cheapest).

So how are they doing the other things they, and you, need doing? They're either giving the work to other people to do, or they aren't doing them.

If they are giving them to someone else to do, then that someone else costs money.

So just giving them more notice, will save you money.

If they aren't doing them, then you are operating inefficiently, and inefficiency costs money.

So just giving them more notice, will save you money.


Is it me, or is there a pattern here......
