As MD at Footsqueek I spend a fair degree of my time working in schools, meeting head teachers and promoting products.
I was in a school earlier to today and had a meeting with a head teacher. As the conversation progressed we started talking around organisation and she openly admitted that she is quite a disorganised person, she went on to say that she was getting an iPad which would “sort her out”.
It occurs to me that this particular head teacher is going to depend on technology to “become organised” but my question is, is it not the person that needs to be organised enough to use the technology?
To give an example – my diary is on my iPad, and my iPhone synced through Microsoft exchange. I need to be organised enough to put appointments in the diary otherwise the technology won’t help me to remember what meetings I have. Surely a disorganised person wouldn’t put the information on the iPad diary just as they would forget to put it in the physical diary?
How organised are you?
