Workshift Book

Workshift

Workshift provides a detailed blueprint for organizations transitioning into the virtual workplace where employees are always connected, and work is no longer a destination. The intent is to provide practical lessons on why (and how) some organizations are further ahead, and what all organizations can learn to realize the potential of the virtual workplace. Specifically, Workshift will detail essential factors that determine success, including the following:

  • Determining business drivers and measures of success
  • Technology and organizational readiness gap assessments
  • Developing a robust Workshift strategy
  • Establishing buy-in and stakeholder management
  • Creating a systematic approach to implementation and acceptance management
  • Determining and monitoring success and individual and organizational metrics
