BLUF: Who do you do O3's with, and how often, when you have up to 45 DR's?
The company I work for has all new supervisors go through Supervising for Success which recommends O3's but how realistic is it when you have 3 teams, a workflow specialist (WFS) for each team, a technician 4 (T4) for each team, and a total of 35-45 technicians and assemblers for each supervisor.
Sometimes the WFS and T4 are the same but often they are not.
The supervisor is responsible for writing reviews for each of their DR's and has daily interactions with each of them
I work in an aviation aftermarket repair and overhaul site for a large company. This is currently 1 of 4 sites in the US that work on aviation electronics equipment. This time next year there will only be 2 sites.
The WFS is responsible for planning and executing team daily deliverables with the the assigned manpower and equipment.
T4's are the more technical members of the team who often have decades of experience with troubleshooting and repair of customer units.
Who should a supervisor hold O3's with, given this information, and how often?
I think I know the MT answer but do not see how anyone can schedule 45 1/2 hour meetings (22 1/2 hours) and still perform.
