The second is a model of organisation, it is paper free, the work has been, productionised, computerised, systematised and digitised. It is highly productive, the future.
Or is it?
Excuse me for being a Luddite, but I am not so sure.
In the first office I know I have a problem, there is a disaster in there somewhere, just waiting to happen.
But in the second office? It all looks great, have I been lulled into a false sense of security?
- What is the next thing to be done?
- What are the burning issues?
- How big is the backlog?
- Is anything about to explode in my face?
I have precisely no idea.
I wonder where all that paper has been hidden, under the carpet or on the hard disk?
I doubt its owner really knows either.
Can you tell me exactly what is going on in your office? At a glance?
Has all that expensive automation solved your problem? Or hidden it?
Maybe there are cheaper more effective ways of getting organised.
