Managing at a Distance - Setting the Groundwork
Factors affecting the viability of managing remote workers
For several years I have been looking at the issues surrounding the need for, and the management of remote workers. This paper looks at some of the environmental factors driving the need to rethink our team and organizational development. The principles here are some of the foundational elements for a book that will be discussing changes in our management of remote workers, and how we think about our organizational structures.
