Mosquitoes find a person to bite by using multiple sensory tools in a specific order. First, they detect a person by sensing the carbon dioxide being exhaled, and as they move closer, they switch to visual cues to hone in on an appropriate target. Finally, when the mosquitoes are very close to a person, they use thermal sensing to solidify their decision before they decide to try to bite. In business, using the appropriate tool at the right time can be key to timely success. For instance, when submitting a paper for publication, initial drafts can be created using the Microsoft Office suite of softwares. However, once the article has been accepted for publication, different softwares must be used to ensure proper formatting of the text and resolution of the tables and figures. Finally, the publisher of the article will use a completely different set of tools to create the final layout.
What suite of tools can you use for your next project to guarantee success?
