This 16 minute segment is the first part of week #2: Get Organized.
After a brief introduction to the week’s materials, the video focuses on how to set up a standard Project Folder that you will duplicate every time you start a project. The structure you set up (with subfolders for different categories of information) will make it easier to know where to store files that are created during the life-cycle of the project. It will also make it faster to find information, since there will be a system for where things are filed.
You may download and adapt the standard project folder demonstrated in the presentation (see below). Another approach, very suitable if your office is already fairly well organized, is to take one of your existing projects and duplicate the job folder, then remove all the actual files while leaving the folder structure intact.
In either case, feel free to rework the folder structure to suit your needs. The main idea is to get organized, and start each project with a good system.
BONUS: Download the Project Folder shown in the video.
