Fast-track decision making with digital meetings

This weekend I suddenly flashed back to life before the internet. My son was working on a school project at the kitchen table with no books in sight. The library? No way, of course he found all of the information online. It was different back in my day. First you would look up the correct book in the card catalogue at school or in the library. And at home you’d dive into the encyclopedia. You know, Wikipedia, but in book form? You copied the relevant materials and then made the report.

Posted by Paul Neefjes on Dec 4, 2015 9:02:00 AM

Two of my friends got new jobs this month, both of them for companies that work without a physical office.  All of the colleagues work from home or at the client’s office. Every other week the colleagues meet on a Friday morning. They spend this time socializing and naturally discussing the progress of projects, and on other typical meeting tasks.  Other companies have embraced teleworking where colleagues are not tied to an office or any specific place.  They usually work from home and they thus see each other less at work.
