By the time you read this, I will be on a business trip to Portland, OR. I'm expecting a high temperature for the day that's about the same as the daily low temperature at my office in Florida. Although travel can be challenging, it still is possible for me be responsive to Kusnetzky Group clients. I'm able to easily access my Email, contact lists, data and applications because they're in the cloud.
This ability has both good and bad attributes. The good part is that I can work from anywhere and at any time. The bad part is that I can work from anywhere and at any time even if I'm sick or trying to take a short holiday. I guess that's the price we pay being "road warriors" today.
How would life be different if nearly all "knowledge workers" could work where they'd like while still being extremely responsive to customer's needs? Would all of us move to some Caribbean Island? Since we all enjoy different environments, that's a bit unlikely.
What differences do you think we'd see?
