Workaround is a way to overcome an obstacle in a task. Typically used when there is an easier, quicker or a fault with the way of doing something. An example of a work around would be a computer company having issues with viruses being attached to emails and bugging computers constantly. In order for the company to work around this issue they could scan the emails for viruses on arrival using anti-virus software. This will allow the business to continue their way of work without the worry.
A work around is something we all use in our daily lives. We naturally think of solutions to overcome daily issues. Whether it be to speed up the process of being late or stuffing tissue under the leg of a table to stop it from rocking. So next time you think of a work around, stop and think how in the future you could stop this from happening. You workaround could be the start of something innovating.
