The Home Workplace - A Builder’s Guide to Its Environment, Energy and Economy

Top Quote "The Home Workplace" is not a research work, but rather an opinion piece based on the author’s 40+ years working as an IT program manager, executive and consultant in various large enterprises while working from home for a significant percentage of the time. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) August 31, 2021 - The Home Workplace, by Daniel R. Perley, is the first book to systematically address ALL aspects of the home workplace, not just the human factors issues as featured in the “telecommuting” literature. It also covers environmental, energy and economic facets of the home workplace, and demonstrates how massive workplace decentralization will help thwart the dominance of big-tech. It is structured for use as an undergraduate or graduate textbook, and offers guidance for conducting case studies and planning and managing group deployments to the home workplace. Highly interdisciplinary, it is suitable for business management, economics and technology courses. As a brand-new release, it is entirely up-to-date.

    The recent COVID-19-induced slamming of millions of information workers into the home workplace has made clear that the planning and management foundations for such a mass migration are anything but solid. At present, the IT industry is scrambling to offer products which do not treat the (remote) worker as a third-class citizen.

    However, it has also uncovered another problem, namely the lack of a coherent theory (and documented practice) about what wide-scale workplace decentralization will really do for the individual, the organization, the local community and ultimately the planet. Indeed, the home workplace can—and ultimately will serve as the gateway to a whole new focus on the triplex of environmental, energy and economic issues. It may even become the portal to a more peaceful and stable world. It is also true that democratizing the control of information technology by mass-migrating to the home workplace will also quickly end the so-called tyranny of “big-tech”.
