On the 17th of January, 2017 Andrew Afinogenov - restaurateur, founder and co-owner of Open Service Company - held Open Lecture "System technology optimization in restaurants" at SWISSAM Hospitality Business & Culinary Arts School.

Andrei Afinogenov spoke to the audience about business optimization - from cable installation to video blogs for employees.

Now it seems that one can optimize everything (or almost everything) from staff management to tips.

"How to manage staff effectively?"

Andrei A .:

Many entrepreneurs still think of their managers as of  "stupid and lazy" employees. I strongly believe that Reinventing Organization are much more efficacious. SCRUM projects help all members of staff to get motivated, to take a lead and set up goals.

"What is the most important for a successful manager?"

Andrei A .:

Above all, remember: Don't bite off more than you can chew.

A good manager knows about every detail, but each employee must handle a certain area of ​​responsibility.  The main task for a successful manager is to plan, to monitor a planned action and to analyze it for a future planning

"You talk about iiko software and dozens of related apps as a new approach to the automation of the restaurant business. Are there any situations where people still work better? "

Andrei A .:

Automating should not be underestimated. Honestly, you can reduce your work to two hours a week! But, for example, I was sure that inventory process needs to be automated, and my chef had proven that they do it faster by themselves, as they work as a team on ad hoc algorithm.
