Summary

The dot-com revolution has ended, but the realities of global organizations in the new, digital economy remain. The challenge is clear. To succeed, companies must leverage the intellectual capital of an increasingly distributed workforce. The challenge is that this is a boundary-crossing problem: it has both organizational and technological aspects, and solving it takes an integration of OD and IT—organization development and information technology.

Although the solution is not as simple as deploying a new application onto every desktop, the potential is great: the ability to work anytime, from any place, to create the high performance distributed organization. In this chapter, you learned about the basic concepts of working virtually, as well as critical factors to consider when choosing a platform for your electronic office. In addition, you saw how to use one such platform—Microsoft SharePoint Team Services—to quickly create a working environment for your distributed team.
