What Do You Need To Do Your Work?

Have you ever been in an office without enough chairs, or network jacks? Have you ever started on a project only to be told “There is a request to get you an account, and you’ll need that before you are able to access anything here.”

These sorts of hold-ups can be infuriating, and expensive. There is not only an initial loss of productivity, but it also gives the employee the impression that her services are not that important and it’s OK if she spends a morning twiddling her thumbs. If you are responsible for the success of a project, make it your mission to reduce these barriers to getting started.
