All of us are dealing with numerous presentations and documents in our day-to-day work life, and I am sure that with the process-oriented culture that runs in most organizations today, at least 70-75% of the content is standard and the rest gets customized. What are the best ways to ensure that the reusable (standard) components are stored in an easily accessible zone so that we don't have to waste time and effort to find these every time, especially if it means running through tens or hundreds of docs/ppts to recover a small bit of content/diagram/workflow etc?

Have a look at Document Scraps to see if it suits your needs.

If so, then you can set up a place where people can save and search for scrap files. Then create a procedure for people to follow so as to build up a library of reusable scraps.
