Electronic file protocol - Recommendations/Best Practices Request
I'm a Manager new to an organization where we are losing an employee who has been with the group for nearly 15 years. They have been tight with their Word/Excel/Power Point files, labeling in a haphazard way, and saving everything...multiple iterations of drafts, working documents, etc. Finding past documents is a bear. It's like an electronic version of the TV show 'Hoarders.' What recommendation or best practices do you have for overhauling the 15 years worth of files, harvesting the truly valid items, and establishing a protocol or naming/filing convention to enable team members to easily find the right files in a timely manner. Thank you for any recommendations...or maybe a Podcast topic.
