9-10 years ago, we were given a 2 day class on running wires for a new IT system in a retail environment. Nothing anywhere near as complex as the pictures above. BUT, for us, it was all new. There were several teams, spread out across the country doing this. Our team (3 guys) was always a day or two behind everyone else depending on the size of the store, and we all know, time is money. I started getting some slack by the bean counters. We're taking too long, costing too much, speed it up, blah, blah, blah. What the hell are you guys doing. One of the big dogs came out to see what was going on. We walked a job site, everything was above ceiling or in 4" conduit down into the cabinets. He stuck his head above the ceiling and verified the runs all looked ok, Conduit drops all looked great, hangers, cat5 and misc. were all under budget, we were just taking too long. SO whats up...are you guys just slow?
Then he opened up the first cabinet, then a second... took out his phone, took a few pictures...and sent them out nationally with a note:
"If your cabinets dont look like this, I want to know why and what your going to do about it"..
The tone of the visit turned around 180 degress and shortly afterwards, my phone began ringing off the hook. I always have preached to my guys, learn to do it right, then learn to do it fast...It wasn't long before our turn around times were well under everyone elses..
