My boss learned about my use of GTD. Now he thinks I'm a wizard at organization and has assigned an ugly little project to me.
In my workgroup, we have a shared network drive. It is a mess.
People have been storing files out there for a few years with no real standard of what should be filed or how things should be filed. Over time, natural staff changes have happened and files have been orhpaned out there.
The result is that we have a lot of disorganized files. Nobody wants to delete them and start over, but it has become a black hole. This must be a common problem.
I know how I organize my own local drive, but that isn't necessarily right for everyone.
I can create a folder structure that makes sense, but the challege will be getting people to actually understand it and use it.
Somebody must have published something helpful on this topic. Thanks for any pointers you might be able to give.
