The Organized Executive: New Ways to Manage Time, Paper, People, and the Electronic Office

Stephanie Winston, Author W. W. Norton & Company $25 (383p) ISBN 978-0-393-03567-4
In this update of her 1983 guide Getting Organized , Winston adds a chapter, a glossary and an equipment list, taking into account the electronic office of the '90s: computers, cellular phones, faxes and other such aids. Basic content here is broken down into categories such as filing and paperwork, time coordination (no $1000 meetings to solve $100 problems), efficient organization (standardize, consolidate, redistribute, prepare ahead) and cardinal management principles (identify objectives, define needed steps, assess progress periodically). This sensible guide to business management is not without light touches: the staff suggestion to move a file cabinet saved eight days a year in walking time; delegating work properly can keep employees too busy to plot against you.
