Flow in the office

When paperwork piles up in the office it is usually pretty easy to spot (the desk looks less tidy for a start). When this pile up occurs on the computer system it is less obvious and appears to be less of a problem.

This is until you need to find a file on the system and you find yourself trudging around the folders and files struggling to find a logical way to find what you want.

Many organisations don't communicate where files are to be stored and as a result people lose time that could be used for more profitable activities.

Information should flow around a business and not get stuck in the hands of a few people, or in intrays that help people to lose track of time.

Find where your information gets stuck, and then re-design the way information flows - if you want a smoother running operation that is!
