Hello everyone, I am reviewing our operational model and believe it is time to address the increasing importance of remote work. I was wondering if anyone has experience in transforming an organization from a colocated organization to a distributed workforce or know any good examples.
In particular, I am interested to learn more about you have seen benefits, but also where you experience difficulties. Also, if you would run the transformation again, what would you do differently?
Thanks for sharing :-)
Ok clear. Best example I can think of is the Belgium ministry of Social Security. We wrote some articles about them (https://corporate-rebels.com/government-department/) and they are also one of the main cases in our book...
Lovely stack of books ;)
Martin, I've been listening lately to the podcast "Distibuted" with Matt Mullenweg (CEO of Automattic) which is all about remote work and examples of remote companies. Highly recommended: https://open.spotify.com/show/59bljZU7v9cJTXKvlfnFN8?si=ETRqPNkvQw2IFN1xCnX6Dg

How are work outcomes affected by the treatment of those who do it? I have been exploring this question for ~50 years. In that time, one comment stuck with me more than any other. It was made in 1998 when I interviewed a group of men in Indianapolis who had redesigned most of the US city’s waste collection and disposal operations. “We are no longer expected to park our brains at the door when we come to work.”
