  • Information can also be collected by requesting the employees to record their day to day activities in the office premises. They should also be required to put in personal notes.
  • All the information must be compiled to develop an outline of the operations and timelines for the whole department.
  • The outline must be analysed to access the places that can be tweaked to improve the efficiency and the operations smoothness of the organisation.
  • In the analysis focus must be paid on the use of various resources and outlining where excess or unnecessary waste of resources and hence the finances can be avoided.
