2017 is finally upon us. Resolutions are made far and wide to get more sleep, exercise, eat healthy — all with the best intentions to be a more rested, fit and better self. What is the biggest hurdle in accomplishing these resolutions? TIME! Hectic schedules on a weekly basis never allow for enough time. Time[…]
Technology, we all have some form of it. For most, it’s that $500+ computer we carry around in the palm of our hand, our back pocket or on our wrist that can help us find the nearest gas station, our destination, the weather, what’s playing at the local theatre and the ability to purchase a[…]
There are many opinions and perceptions about collaborating remotely or within a virtual team. Many assume that collaboration decreases as the geographic distance between team members increases. But is there any truth to this? Do virtual teams have it harder than teams that are co-located? The answer is yes. Research has shown that virtual teams[…]
(Note: Special thanks this month goes to my friend Chuck Wilsker, President of the Telework Coalition. Chuck provided the good info below about home office safety. You can learn more about the TelCoa at www.telcoa.org) Last month I wrote about how you could use the 5S methodology to organize your home office. It’s a good[…]
A few decades ago, Toyota Production System gained attention for its manufacturing processes. The methodology and collection of tools used by Toyota engineers was later coined “lean” and popularized in the book The Machine That Changed the World. (Coincidentally, lean started to become popular during the era when the process improvement methodology Six Sigma was[…]
This past month marked the culmination of a two year journey. Two years ago I set out to co-author a book with a colleague and along the way joined forces with two others to produce our book, Workshift, as a virtual collaborative effort. Located in four different cities, across two countries, we merged our collective[…]
After a long week of divergent opinions on Marissa Mayer’s decision to revoke the option to work-at-home for Yahoos, I’ve had the chance to connect with colleagues on the fallout of such a decision and the resulting national conversations that have flowed forth. Many agree that it was a shortsighted edict, but one that given[…]
Looking towards the future and how our workplaces are evolving is always inspiring. Earlier this month, PSFK released a great report on The Future of Work, which showcases the breadth of changes underway in how we work. Some workplaces still resist the cultural need for change, but the pressure for organizations to evolve for myriad reasons, not[…]
We’re all familiar with ice breakers – the quick facilitated exercises that are typically done when a team or group meets for the first time. There are many different types of exercises a facilitator or team leader can use; some are related directly to the project at hand, others may be more personal, and some[…]
A study from KPMG confirms what most of us already know: virtual and flexible workplaces will grow in 2013 and beyond. Flexible work cultures create competitive advantages and the omnipotent use of technology to enable a distributed workforce will only strengthen. That said, offices are not going away anytime soon, nor should they. An ideal work[…]
For years I’ve dealt with Six Sigma (process improvement) projects. The one debate that comes up time and time again is around project benefits and what constitutes “hard” versus “soft” benefits. I’ve now been engaged in more than a few of the same type of discussions when it comes to telework. By now, you’ve heard[…]
Contingency planning is one of many reasons why the ability to work from a remote site (home office or otherwise) is a smart solution to minimizing the interruptions a severe weather event can unearth. Continuity of operations in the public and private sectors is essential and Hurricane Sandy is another example that demonstrates why organizations[…]
