It's hard not to be swept up by breakthroughs in information technology and the promise they hold for somehow making our work environment a better place. This is the book that explores that "somehow" in a way that few other books in the field have succeeded in doing.
With care and precision--and alot of insight--the author presents the "big picture" of how alternative work arrangements, alternative space arrangements, and information technology are interconnected. Without in any way being a "cookbook," the book provides the tools that should allow just about any organization to assess what means of work transformation are most appropriate for its own situation. It then shows how to overcome organizational inertia to win support for those changes. Easier said than done, but here at least is a navigational aid!
The book is clearly written and avoids the hype of technojargon so much in fashion by proponents of IT. The author is Canadian, but the content is fully applicable to any U.S. organization.

When I got through reading Ken Roberston's book, I was struck by its far-reaching implications. As a corporate real estate professional in a medium-size Midwestern city, I realize that there are few companies in the U.S. that are making optimal use of their available real estate options. (I'm sure this applies equally to Robertson's Canada and every other Western industrialized country.) One hears a lot these days about "downsizing" and "outsourcing"--and these are certainly among the options to many organizations. But Robertson goes way beyond these obvious alternative space arrangements to discuss how an organization needs to rethink ALL of its space requirements. What makes this book so useful is that he takes this major and complex challenge and shows step-by-step how to approach it, involve all parties, and implement and evaluate pilot programs. This goes a long way toward avoiding costly surprises. Although Roberston presents plenty of examples and case histories, he does not explicitly show how his appoach should be tailored to each type of organization. Some readers may consider this a flaw. I think, however, that such a treatment would be beyond the scope of the book. The thoughtful real estate professional will want to bring his or her own experiences/situation to bear, anyway , in applying Roberston's methodology. I highly recommend the book for it cohesive approach. The 300 or so pages are worth FAR more than would be thirty 10-page publication articles on the subject.
