Some arguments you will find in the book among others:
- Collaboration and communication tools are here, the missing upgrade is the human mind
- Work don’t happen at work because of interruptions. People who have an important job to do… will do it elsewhere.
Mc Gregor’s Theory X and Theory Y, will help to understand the weakness of the arguments of opponents of remote working:
- If I don’t see them, how would I know that they are working?
- If I see them, I can control them
We need a mutual trust to work together… And we need to manage work, and not the presence of people on their chairs.
The book, composed of small posts, addressed also: tools, tips to work from home, coworking spaces, starting to introduce remote working in a team, work from home with customers, recruitment and onboarding.
There’s also a chapter on Open Source learnings, my favorite subject !
