Staggering Staff to Meet Demand

Supply and demand may be the most basic economic concept, but that certainly does not mean it isn’t one of the, if not the, most important.

Your quantity supplied (Qs) should be equal to the quantity demanded (Qd) where the supply curve intersects demand.

Knowing the abstract concepts of supply and demand, however, is just half the battle. In order to make sure you properly stagger your labor and provide the appropriate amount of supply, you need to know your demand. Having a flexible, solid supply chain will enable you to meet whichever demand is requested.
