Successful CEO buried in paperwork
Before / After Case Study
( Move mouse over picture for after )
Papers were the dominant player on the desk of this busy CEO. Years of inaction kept these papers piling up until they were no longer important. Time was the organizing factor for this desk. Once a few years past, the bottom layer could be removed because it no longer was a pressing matter.
Every paper in the office was touched and either filed or tossed. The Freedom Filer filing system was implemented so that all papers put into the file system would have an exit strategy. This way the folders would not expand into more file cabinets over time.
We created a filling system that kept piles off of the desk and focused on keeping 60% of the desk area open for business. Instead of laying a paper onto the desk surface when in hand, a decision was made as to whether it should be tossed, filed into a hanging folder or moved into one of the vertical desktop folders as an active project. Months later, the desk is still clear and the system is functioning!
