When I managed multiple crews at different locations, we did what several people on here have mentioned, a white board. We bought the 8x4 sheets at HDepot or Lowes and hung them on the walls. We then divided them by crews and by days. We actually had it broken down to "Budgeted Hours" on each customer for each day and crew. The crews then wrote down their "Actual" times on the board daily and how much they were over/under the budgeted hours. At the end of each week/month, our Production Mgrs would log them onto a form and enter them into the computer, then reset the board. It wasn't as nice as the one in the pic, but it was easy and productive. Plus it gave each supervisor and manager a way to communicate as to why they were under/over budget and opened the discussion about productivity. It was a great teaching tool! And a whole lot easier to job cost a client. As for Enhancements/ DB, it was the same thing... just more crazy!!
