Teach Your Staff How to Organize

Posted on March 1, 2002
As any transportation director knows, time management and organization are critical challenges facing school transportation. Your staff is constantly being asked to do more with less and to do it with fewer mistakes. Cobb County School District in Marietta, Ga., has found a solution to these problems that teaches staff the fundamentals of managing and organizing to increase productivity. The district uses the services of Atlanta-based Weber Associates Inc., a company that specializes in developing programs to help businesses deal with the realities of a fast-paced workplace. Says Carroll Pitts, executive director of transportation for Cobb County Schools, “The process has taught my staff how to handle documenting, planning, organizing, reducing stress, retrieving information, managing our desks and other skills.” Pitts says that Weber’s approach can be applied to Palm and handheld devices and computer software programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Lotus and ACT. Weber’s programs are ideal for school transportation because they apply to an “interrupt-driven” environment. For more information, go to
