    I liked this book better than Why Work Sucks it s predecessor WWS was a bit too conceptual for me at the time and this one wasrelevant and concrete, providingspecific examples and case studies Or maybe it is just that now that I have worked in a ROWE for 2 years, I think about what is being presented differently Definitely a lot of the information is similar to WWS, so someone reading both might not get as much out of one or the other I liked WMS because even though I do not I liked this book better tha...

    Manage the work, not the people It seems so obvious, but when I was made a managers I had all kinds of concerns about how to motivate and empower people Further reading has shown me that all motivation that matters is intrinsic anyway so all you can really do is create an autonomy supportive environment with clear metrics for success, provide encouragement, and maintain that environment Then let people get on with their work Any confusion still going on in my brain about what it meant to Manage the work, not the people It seems so obvious, but when I was made a managers I had all kinds of concerns about how to motivate and empower people Further reading has shown me that all motivation that matters is intrinsic anyway so all you can really do is create an autonomy supportive environment with clear metrics for success, provide...

    A good book about the success of ROWE and why it can work in almost any field right now The only thing I wish was covereddeeply was the the chapter about measuring the results Overall a good book.
