Ed is a typical office worker. He has stacks of paper to process and lots of stationery equipment on his table. Unfortunately he is disorganised and tends to leave this equipment lying on his table. It falls on the floor and is lost and when he wants to find a pen/pencil or other equipment quickly, it takes him time to find it.

   

He is determined to improve his office skills and central to this is desk/table top organisation. He has employed a designer to help him solve this difficult task. The designer starts by asking him a range of questions. The answers (seen in blue) will help the designer develop a product that will solve Edís problem.
