Jack Nilles has been advancing the ball on telecommuting ever since he dreamed up the whole idea while stuck in a 1974 Los Angeles traffic jam. This latest book is no exception. This is the best guide yet to surmounting obstacles to telework, a term that includes all modes of technology-assisted work.

—Sue Shellenbarger in her column Work & Family in The Wall Street Journal, 16 December 1998

There is no better guide to telework than Jack Nilles. His insights are of growing importance to managers and teleworkers at all levels and sectors of government, business, and industry.

Jack Nilles’ new book MANAGING TELEWORK . . . .  is an updated and revised version of MAKING TELECOMMUTING HAPPEN: A GUIDE FOR TELEMANAGERS AND TELECOMMUTERS, written in 1994 by Nilles. That one was good but this one is great - and it is the book I will begin recommending unequivocally as the definitive guide for program planners, managers and remote workers. If I have been contemplating doing a new book myself on this topic, I can forget about it; I wouldn’t want to try to compete with this book.
It covers everything from selection of teleworkers and teleworking sites, technology planning, and management techniques to policies, tips for home-based teleworkers, training, and cost-benefit analysis. In other words, it has everything you need to plan a good program and put it into practice. You shouldn’t be without it.
