As soon as the organizational method has been optimized and course of process has been clarified, the necessary tools to achieve those goals can be put under close examination since they are the essential working appliances for every single task.
Again there is no general answer to the validity of a tool. As diverse the tasks may be, as diverse the tools can be to be applied to their achievement. Sometimes it helps not to apply regularly used tools and instead take unusual tools into consideration to find a new approach to the issue and to facilitate a more efficient process.
According to the popular saying “form follows function” we hereby could say: “tool follows process”, i.e. the tool most likely to serve the needs is to be chosen – be it pen and paper or a high end software tool. Thus we can show new paths to the aspired aim by leaving beaten tracks.
