ABSTRACT
The article presents some tips to business executives on creating an organized office. Standolyn Robertson, president of the National Association of Professional Organizers in Glenview, Illinois and founder of Things in Place in Boston, Massachusetts, advises creating a filing system that makes sense for the executive, whether this means filing things alphabetically or by subject. Robertson also suggests using a U-shape or L-shape desk that gives more surface space.
