Our office is quite small – a few desks … and computers of course.  One of our members of staff is a graphic designer (amongst other things, for of course we cannot afford single-specialism staff) and this week I provided him with a graphics tablet.

He was slightly surprised – but very grateful. More importantly it transformed his ability to do (some parts of) his job.

It is good to be reminded of how important it is to:

(a) have the right tools and technology

(b) ensure we allow all our staff to use their talents to the full 

A simple review of how well we do these things is a useful exercise.  Try it!
