Today I leave a simple tip for big(ger) companies:
If you´re the Head or CEO of a big company running subsidiaries in various cities or even countries with your staff traveling frequently, it makes sense to use the same office devices in all locations.
The main aspect beside the telephone or cell phone is the copy machine which functions in the meantime as a printer, scanner and pdf.-file Mailer. If everybody of all your employees know the technical handling there´s no time consuming hurdle to grab the print outs and scan them for sending them to your co-worker in another city or country. You will print, sign and scan the important contract for your customer real quick and send it directly off as an Email.
Sameness delivers the benefit that you know which soft-buttons to push.
Reducing instruction knowledge for technical devices to a minimum offers extra time for the relevant work and decisions. And to buy and install the same devices in all your offices, even worldwide is a smart decision. You will even get a great bonus from the provider.
Here´s the clue: the less we need to actively think about how to do “this” the more we run our routines automatically and quicker. Corporate Design in terms of Corporate Devices is one factor.
And as owner, Founder or CEO it´s a one-time main factor which shall fill the criteria on your decision list.
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
