More time for important things


In the evening tired coming home with the feeling, again not to have managed everything that has gathered on the office table? You're not alone. Do you appreciate the actual share of productive and efficient work on an ordinary day at the office? 80 Percentage?

Unfortunately wrong: Around 50 percent are usually spent on important and urgent orders. For that to change, Edith Stork advises Company - and for everyone else she has written a practical book that has now been reissued.

50% of the working time for searching


"He who keeps order is only too lazy to seek" - the saying hits the nail on the head. And it shows that something has to change. For those who waste their days searching, create the best basis for sustainable stress.

50% of working time, says practitioner Edith Stork, goes for "private time" and "search, filing" on it. So it's called "clean up!". And Edith Stork shows how. But "logistics in the office" is much more than "clearing-up and order adviser". Stork presents "a holistic approach to office workflows" that also improves communication, because everyone knows the workplace of their colleague.

APDOK for docking


The heart of the guide is the AP-Dok principle. The acronym stands for "Administration", "Projects" and "Documentation" and provides you with the framework for an efficient organization of all necessary work.

From now on, you will be able to separate administrative tasks such as invoices and filing from current projects (orders, concepts, product development) and documentation (files, catalogs, reference books, clippings). This of course applies to the paper tray ("Only wide folders, all take the same pens and heed the same rules for the label").

All in good time


But also for your daily business: Do not get bogged down by intervening eMails, letters, telephone and online tasks constantly jumping back and forth. Set up fixed times. Also for reading documents.

Always read with markers and scissors to emphasize important parts in newspaper articles. Stork has compiled numerous good tips in her book that will give you "a positive time account" at the end of the day. One of the best in it: "Reserve once a month for yourself and your employees a deletion on the old eMails, files but also waste paper. "



"Logistics in the office" addresses equally to all office workers. The book shows how, with a few clear rules, they facilitate the orientation in the jungle of the act and free up a lot of time. Even the self-employed profit from the many practical tips!
