Managing an office means utilizing the available assets to get the job done. The assets are of people, equipment and knowledge. The equipment is easy. Make sure there are enough supplies and everybody has the right tools to do what is needed. Cut costs where you can, but not if the cutting end up costing more at the end of the day. For instance, buying new computers or copiers can often save more money than they cost because people can work faster. The harder part is dealing with people, the staff. Read up on team building and team leading. Adapt so that you interact with the team in the best way that gets them to perform the best. For more information look here: www.businessknowhow.com;
