The 11 annoyances of transaction management

Many inefficiencies are too implicit to hurt. Human beings likely sustain a dozen of small inefficiencies rather than avoiding one big annoyance. Even if the small inefficiencies are measurably more burdensome, ‘emotion’ and ‘ratio’ often mismatch in human behaviour. If that is the case, people do not bother following incredibly inefficient steps.

One such area where these emotional mismatches come into play is transaction management.

  4. Not the other party’s file naming habits

  11. You organize contract files and documents (your file structuring and classification
