If I can give some a word of advice to aspiring and existing CAD managers....TOOL PALETTES. Learn, create, maintain and enforce them. By moving your existing block library to a shared tool palette it will help enforce CAD standards and assimilate new employees into the company's CAD world. You can also create objects that are preset to specific layers, linetypes.....etc.
The sky is the limit for what can be added to palettes. Start using them now and migrate to every new release of AutoCAD.
