From prof. Kordonsky we
learner important things, and for all life. The first lesson was:
before you start doing the computerized schedule, be able to do it
manually. This was a clever advice because only after a year of
intensive contacts with practitioners, we started to understand what
the scheduling is about, was is essential and what is secondary.
Prof. Kordonsky never was
a “boss” who issued order and instructions. He created a stimulating
atmosphere of intensive exchange of opinions and discussions,
sometimes heated, but always efficient. He was open to any
suggestion and critical remark. In spite of this tremendous
scientific authority, nobody was afraid of asking questions or of
insisting on this opinion.
