Founders of Basecamp, David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried literally wrote the book on remote working. As well as making software to make remote working possible, they wrote this popular and influential book about working remotely too.
REMOTE shows both employers and employees how they can work together, remotely, from any desk, in any place, anytime, anywhere.
For too long our lives have been dominated by the ‘under one roof’ Industrial Revolution model of work. That era is now over. There is no longer a reason for the daily roll call, of the need to be seen with your butt on your seat in the office. The technology to work remotely and to avoid the daily grind of commuting and meetings has finally come of age, and bestselling authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the masters of making it work at tech company Basecamp (changed from 37signals 2014 to reflect their most popular product). Remote working is the future – and it is rushing towards us.
Remote: Office Not Required combines eye-opening ideas with entertaining narrative. It will convince you that working remotely increases productivity and innovation, and it will also teach you how to get it right – whether you are a manager, working solo or one of a team. Chapters include: ‘Talent isn’t bound by the hubs’, ‘It’s the technology, stupid’, ‘When to type, when to talk’, ‘Stop managing the chairs’ and ‘The virtual water cooler’.
Brilliantly simple and refreshingly illuminating this is a call to action to end the tyranny of being shackled to the office.
