Interesting HBR blog by Scott Behson that identifies ways in which work flexibility can be introduced in the work place, with potential benefits for productivity and employee satisfaction.  This structured approach includes:

  • person diagnosis
  • job redesign to increase substitutability and teamwork
  • mentoring and personal development
  • coordination technology
