Understand location and time dependencies
In many organizations, there will be work that’s dependent on a particular location. Some industries, like manufacturing, will always be tied to physical locations, as will others where the work relies on non-portable equipment.
Often, activities will also be constrained by time, such as customer contact roles and for employees located in specific time zones. Today, however, the majority of knowledge economy work can be done at any time and in virtually any location.
Even so, it’s important to recognize that while certain activities can be done remotely in theory, investment may be needed to make this work in practice. You may need to implement new technology or add a hub location outside your existing property estate, for example.
