Remote control

The global proliferation of Wi-Fi technology has enabled project managers to work anywhere in the world, from client offices, hotel rooms, and airports to their local coffee shop, home office, and even makeshift accommodations in the some of the world's most inhospitable of places. This article discusses the lifestyle--and work choices--that Wi-Fi-enabled mobility is enabling. In doing so, it identifies how this technology is shaping the way contemporary project managers think and perform; it describes why project managers who operate on-the-road often need additional organizational support when making project-related decisions. It then suggests how project managers can establish some degree of simplicity and order when working outside of the corporate office. Accompanying this article are two sidebars: The first overviews the need for cultivating personal friendships when working on the road; the second suggests how project managers can enjoy their downtime while working on-the-road.
