Crew Management: This is the process of managing your crew during a job. The job could be for painting a house or installing siding and other different works we’ll mention below, for example, to better understand you. The manager could be the owner of the company or another manager in the company. For a job to be successful, the crew manager should have a plan. The plan should include a schedule, a list of supplies, and a list of contacts.
What is Crew management actually mean?
In the world of aviation (or as I like to call it, “the aviation life”), crew management is the term given to the process of managing all the moving parts in a flight crew’s life. This includes the personal development of crew members, as well as recruiting, hiring, educating, and training pilots.
For example, we take a look at flight
Before you begin putting together a flight plan, it’s important to understand the different types of crew management. Crew management refers to the process of making a determination as to whether a flight can be operated safely.
Different tasks must be completed before a flight’s crew members can take off, and these crew management tasks are grouped into three categories: planning, operations, and FAA and regulatory requirements.
Another example is a vehicle management
In commercial trucking, there is a standard way of assigning loads to drivers. Each truck is assigned to a specific driver, and the load is assigned to that driver. In essence, the dispatcher is the manager of a roster of drivers, working to assign loads to drivers and re-assign loads when a driver is sick or leaves the company.
Theatre is the best example to understand
Crew management is the management of theatre crews. Emergent theatre crews, where participants are self-selected, “self-deployed, and self-organized”, require a crew manager to organize and guide crews.
The 2018 Crew Management 101 plus tips webinar held on November 7, 2018, was a valuable tool for Captains, Engineers, and Officers. It provided attendees with valuable information on receiving, reviewing, and interpreting crew evaluations, along with tips on how to use that information to improve your crew’s morale and performance.
During the webinar, Kevin Logan, PhD, a Crew Performance Specialist and an expert in Crew Performance were joined by Captains, Chief Engineers, and Officers to discuss best practices for developing and sustaining effective performance management strategies in the maritime industry.
