Business owners buy new software and hardware to solve efficiency problems, but very hesitant to review workflow and information management systems. The way we work is more important than the tools we work with.This point is illustrated by Bill Gates:
“The first rule of any technology in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.”
When faced with a productivity problem I ask you to consider this:
“It is in vain to do with more what can be done with less.”
William of Occam
Work smarter not harder with effective training and avoid clunky programs which consume resources and employee time.
