Contexts or Projects for Corporate Depts?
I think Ive gone down the rabbit hole and need some help...

I own a small business and am attempting to keep things organized as we grow and currently I wear the hats of many departments. In my attempt to put things into buckets I have set up projects for departments (ex: HR, AP/AR, R and D) so that I still have the ability to put context to each task (phone, a specific person, etc).
But in reading through some posts and other GTD forums it seems that I may be better served by making those departments Contexts instead of Projects. My only concern in that in assigning context to a task in a project under a given 'Department Context' it might get confusing and hard to manage.

Personally, I would create a folder for each Department. Then put specific department projects under each specific department folder as well as a Single Action List in each folder (i.e. HR SAL, etc).
