The Digital Workplace: How Technology Is Liberating Work Reviews
Nice and quick read. Paul Miller provides lots of examples of how work is increasingly becoming independent of place and time. If you are familiar with the concept of 'The Digital Workplace' you are not likely to learn many new things here. A nice primer for those interested in the area. Personally, I would have liked a more critical and in-depth views in some areas.
If you are new to the concept of the Digital Workplace, this is a good primer and introduction. My main caveat with this book is the layout and design of the book. The design added nothing, would have been better to stay with a normal textbook design.
