Remote: Office Not Required

Free sample

Basecamp founders Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson explore the "work from home" phenomenon and show precisely how a remote work setup can be accomplished in Remote.

The Industrial Revolution's "under one roof" model of conducting work is steadily declining as technology creates virtual workspaces that allow employees to provide their vital contribution without physically clustering together. Today, the new paradigm is "move work to the workers, rather than workers to the workplace."

Remote work increases the talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens the real estate footprint, and improves the ability to conduct business across multiple time zones, to name just a few advantages. As Fried and Hansson explain the challenges and unexpected benefits of this phenomenon, they show why--with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo--more businesses will want to promote this model of getting things done.

“One of the 12 best business books of all time…. Timeless principles of empowering leadership.” – USA Today

"The best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution.” —FORTUNE

Since Turn the Ship Around! was published in 2013, hundreds of thousands of readers have been inspired by former Navy captain David Marquet’s true story. Many have applied his insights to their own organizations, creating workplaces where everyone takes responsibility for his or her actions, where followers grow to become leaders, and where happier teams drive dramatically better results.

Marquet was a Naval Academy graduate and an experienced officer when selected for submarine command. Trained to give orders in the traditional model of “know all–tell all” leadership, he faced a new wrinkle when he was shifted to the Santa Fe, a nuclear-powered submarine. Facing the high-stress environment of a sub where there’s little margin for error, he was determined to reverse the trends he found on the Santa Fe: poor morale, poor performance, and the worst retention rate in the fleet.

Almost immediately, Marquet ran into trouble when he unknowingly gave an impossible order, and his crew tried to follow it anyway. When he asked why, the answer was: “Because you told me to.” Marquet realized that while he had been trained for a different submarine, his crew had been trained to do what they were told—a deadly combination.

That’s when Marquet flipped the leadership model on its head and pushed for leadership at every level. Turn the Ship Around! reveals how the Santa Fe skyrocketed from worst to first in the fleet by challenging the U.S. Navy’s traditional leader-follower approach. Struggling against his own instincts to take control, he instead achieved the vastly more powerful model of giving control to his subordinates, and creating leaders.

Before long, each member of Marquet’s crew became a leader and assumed responsibility for everything he did, from clerical tasks to crucial combat decisions. The crew became completely engaged, contributing their full intellectual capacity every day. The Santa Fe set records for performance, morale, and retention. And over the next decade, a highly disproportionate number of the officers of the Santa Fe were selected to become submarine commanders.

Whether you need a major change of course or just a tweak of the rudder, you can apply Marquet’s methods to turn your own ship around.
The New York Times bestseller by the acclaimed, bestselling author of Start With Why and Together is Better. Now with an expanded chapter and appendix on leading millennials, based on Simon Sinek's viral video "Millenials in the workplace" (150+ million views).

Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders create environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things. 

In his work with organizations around the world, Simon Sinek noticed that some teams trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other teams, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why?

The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. "Officers eat last," he said. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line. What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care.
     
Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside.

Sinek illustrates his ideas with fascinating true stories that range from the military to big business, from government to investment banking.

V knize Práce na dálku přináší Jason Fried a David Heinemeier Hansson, zakladatelé firmy 37signals (nedávno přejmenované na Basecamp) a autoři nekonvenčního bestselleru Restart, nový pohled na aktuální téma. Práce na dálku s sebou podle Jasona a Davida nese řadu výzev – a v blízké budoucnosti práci v kanceláři převálcuje.


V posledních letech je model práce „pod jednou střechou“ na ústupu pod vlivem nových technologií, které umožňují vytvořit virtuální pracovní prostředí prakticky kdekoli. To s sebou nese řadu výhod – konec dlouhých hodin strávených dojížděním, přijetí té nejlepší možné práce (nikoli té, co je poblíž) a dosažení rovnováhy mezi zaměstnáním a životem a zároveň zvýšení produktivity.


A to jsou jen některé z výhod, které můžete opuštěním tradiční kanceláře získat. Práce na dálku odhaluje další přínosy tohoto modelu práce spolu s množstvím tipů, jak si zorganizovat pracovní den mimo kancelář.


# V KNIZE SE DOZVÍTE

Proč vůbec zavádět práci na dálku, když máme tak pěkné kanceláře?Kde a jak najdu nejlepší talenty světa?Jak zajistím, aby mezi vzdálenými kolegy fungovala spolupráce?Jaké nástroje mám používat?Jak zabráním pocitu izolace a vyhoření svých pracovníků?Kde všude se dá pracovat?

 # ŘEKLI O KNIZE


„To, že držíte tuto knihu v ruce, je důkazem, že práce na dálku funguje. Naše nakladatelství nemá společnou kancelář.“ 


– Tomáš Baránek, Jan Melvil Publishing


„V Práci na dálku najdete promyšlené rady těch, kteří už sami na poli virtuální pracovní síly uspěli. Je to manifest odložení dusivých organizačních zvyků týkajících se místa a času práce a osvojení nejlepších pracovních postupů pro úplně nový virtuální a globální svět. Pokud vám vaše firma svěřila zodpovědnost za produktivitu, tohle si musíte přečíst.“ 


– David Allen, autor mezinárodního bestselleru Mít vše hotovo: Jak zvládnout práci i život a cítit se při tom dobře


„Práce na dálku je víc než jen soubor kvalitních rad. Knížka je nabitá fascinujícími postřehy o spolupráci, inovacích a lidské mysli.“ 


– Leo Babauta, autor knihy Zen Habits: Handbook for Life


# O AUTORECH


JASON FRIED a DAVID HEINEMEIER HANSSON jsou zakladatelé firmy 37signals (nedávno přejmenované na Basecamp), průkopnické softwarové společnosti, a tvůrci nejznámějšího webového nástroje na řízení projektů Basecamp a dalších užitečných produktů, jako je Backpack, Highrise nebo Campfire. Svou firmu vybudovali na principech práce na dálku – když začínali, jeden partner žil v Kodani a druhý v Chicagu. Od té doby se rozrostli na třicet šest lidí rozptýlených po celém světě, obsluhujících miliony uživatelů. Jejich první kniha Restart (v originále Rework) se stala bestsellerem podle žebříčku New York Times a byla přeložena do mnoha jazyků.


# VÍCE O KNIZE


http://melvil.cz/kniha-prace-na-dalku

In this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and "whatever it takes" are required to run a successful business today.

In Rework, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson introduced a new path to working effectively. Now, they build on their message with a bold, iconoclastic strategy for creating the ideal company culture—what they call "the calm company." Their approach directly attack the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and hampers billions of workers every day.

Long hours, an excessive workload, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for modern professionals. But it should be a mark of stupidity, the authors argue. Sadly, this isn’t just a problem for large organizations—individuals, contractors, and solopreneurs are burning themselves out the same way. The answer to better productivity isn’t more hours—it’s less waste and fewer things that induce distraction and persistent stress.

It’s time to stop celebrating Crazy, and start celebrating Calm, Fried and Hansson assert.

Fried and Hansson have the proof to back up their argument. "Calm" has been the cornerstone of their company’s culture since Basecamp began twenty years ago. Destined to become the management guide for the next generation, It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work is a practical and inspiring distillation of their insights and experiences. It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done—and how any manager or executive no matter the industry or size of the company, can do it too.
