Force Multiplication Through Cross-Training

In what will surely be our last outburst of serious ranting, Rockbottum Country Club offers a Skeletal Golf Theory segment on a tried and true method for adapting to economic changes.

It's like Judge Smails said, "I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.  Didn't want to, but I felt I owed it to them."

I didn't want to do this film, but I felt I owed it to you.

Starting off in this industry working for Randy Nichols at Cherokee T & CC, I thought every course cross trained their staff.  The entire staff  at Cherokee was taught irrigation, drainage, construction, equipment operation, welding, etc.  Then I started hearing these terms "spray tech" and "irrigation tech" and couldn't believe that at other courses, they had a dedicated person to these jobs.  Always seemed inefficient to dedicate a "tech" to a job when you could teach several on the staff to do it and also allow some flexibility with staffing.  This is a great video that everyone can learn from.  Good job Randy!

Thanks, Fred, not only for the positive feedback, but for allowing us to shoot that on your course.

Last year, through an unnamed informant, I realized your staff received a great deal of cross training and began preparing for this film.  The expected instability in the markets reared up and Momma said, "Time to release that cross training film--before it's an afterthought!"

Also, your office looks great on camera.
