Are you a Manager, Human Resource Professional or Executive Officer of an Organization that has asked yourself… “How do I effectively manage a mobile workforce as successfully as teams that have been co-located?”
Today, our work environment includes commuting to our offices, opening our laptops, plugging in the cell and beginning our workday. Communicating Virtually is premier as the phone is used with less frequency.

Simply Not Required :
X New Management Theories for “Virtual Teams”
X Elaborate and Specialized Technology Tools
X Extensive “Telework” plans, rules and regulations
This is not your mother’s telecommuting…we are mobile. Even without a sanctioned telework program and policies, we are working remotely. Very few organizations do not have employees working from remote locations – it happened organically without a “telecommuting program.”
