8. Check the Olympic timetable before scheduling a meeting or a call
Don't get so wrapped up in work that you forget that the world's greatest sporting spectacle is going on. And while you might not be a huge fan of the long jump or discus, your colleagues or your boss might be. So before booking in that meeting it might be wise to check which events are taking place and when, and whether you'll be upsetting any fans. After all, if it's a heat for the 100m, it's not likely to take very long.

9. Don't become an Olympic hermit
The Olympics and Paralympics run from 27 July until 9 September. That's a long time to work from home, especially if it's not something staff are accustomed to doing. Make sure there are regular opportunities to meet up or work together — even if it's only occasionally — otherwise team cohesion will suffer.

Of course, with all the disruption of the Olympics comes some fun — if you've managed to bag yourself a ticket or two, that is. If you are going to the Olympics, check out this list of iPhone apps to help you navigate, manage your data and generally have a good time.
