    I was surprised by the negativity in this article for ending telecommuting for Yahoo. It’s been clear for a long time that Yahoo is in trouble. I think this was a hard decision to make and one that they really thought about before deciding to move forward with it. Why do I think this? Because it is a HUGE change.

    Sometimes you need to take a step back before you can move forward. I think it takes a strong working group to be able to make telecommuting successful. And from experience, I can say that for some projects/problems and types of jobs, it actually takes more time to telecommute and collaborate than it does to just walk over to someone’s desk and talk through it with them.

    Perhaps this step is what Yahoo needs right now… in order to build a stronger core that is capable of making telecommuting a successful option for them. Also, sometimes it is not just the bottom-most workers that need to be good at telecommuting… but the various management levels themselves. Unfortunately, I personally have not experienced many managers that are good at remotely managing.

    A conversation doesn’t have to be work related for it to be productive. Conversations build relationships.

    Outsourcing is a boon to the economy of any country. The person or organization which is outsourcing projects to any offshore company are saving a huge amount of money. unless they have to pay triple. Moreover due to outsourcing the organization profit directly affects the economy of that country. Moreover business collaboration is what we need in this era.
