I attended the Roadmap seminar and I must say it was wonderful!
Ok, I have an attorney who is the lead attorney for our corporate/commercial group. He has approximately 13 attorneys who he delegates work to. After speaking with him, I explained to him that he needs to be managing the Project and not the Tasks. He was delegating Tasks to his delegates, but either due to poor use of Outlook, poor description of the Next Action, or the delegate dropping the ball or not reporting back to the lead attorney properly, he gave up and is no longer sharing his tasks (through Outlook.)
I have given the lead attorney the GTD book, but he hasn't been able to read it yet. He's interested, so there is hope.
My question is this:
Do you think it would be possible to use the Category field in Outlook Tasks to define the Client/Matter OR delegates name (it depends on whether he can do the work or if the delegate is solely responsible) in order to give him a view of the whole playing field?
I don't believe that he can use the traditional @Office, @Calls, contexts because of all the items that he has in the air at one time for MANY different matters.
