Organize the Complex Working Environment

Set up the Complex Working Environment

A messy workplace can sap creativity, focus, and energy. It’s not enough for people to keep the work environment clean and neat; workers also need a thought process that helps them focus their efforts. Without such a mental framework goals will be out of reach.

If you have a mess of cables, papers, and coffee spills in your office, it will be more difficult to locate things when they’re all organized and easily accessible. The solution is the Japanese concept of kaizen, which has been translated to English as «sustain.» It’s an easy five-step process which is Sort, Set in Order, Shine Standardize and Sustain. The first three steps involve regular cleaning, tidying and organizing of the workspace. The final step involves setting up procedures to perform the first three steps and keep the workspace tidy efficient, productive, and effective.

The most successful leaders realize that no organization can meet the expectations of all its employees, but they are aware of dominant currents that influence the workplace, work habits, dress codes, and the underlying assumptions. They try to break out of these currents. These are the organizations that are welcoming to the IT worker wearing sandals and shorts or the buttoned down financial services company that welcomes employees who wear jeans to work.
