Remote: Office Not Required By Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson

According to Reuters, one in five global workers telecommutes frequently and nearly ten percent work from home every day. Moms in particular will welcome this trend. A full 60% wish they had a flexible work option. But companies see advantages too in the way remote work increases their talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens their real estate footprint, and improves the ability to conduct business across multiple time zones, to name just a few advantages.

In Remote, inconoclastic authors Fried and Hansson will convince readers that letting all or part of work teams function remotely is a great idea--and they're going to show precisely how a remote work setup can be accomplished.

True Alignment: Linking Company Culture with Customer Needs for Extraordinary Results By Edgar Papke

Alignment is the single most critical business challenge for any organization and its leaders. Without it, inefficiency, conflict, and disengagement will cripple your ability to provide value to your customers.

A blueprint for businesses of all types and sizes, True Alignment reveals how to: decipher customer expectations; define the brand as a solution to the customer's needs; turn the unique selling proposition into the mission; create a company culture where everyone is aligned to this vision - and responsible for living the brand promise; and more.

Wiki Management: A Revolutionary New Model for a Rapidly Changing and Collaborative World By Rod Collins

We now live in a "wiki" world where mass collaboration is not only possible - it's often the best solution. Conventional management thought assumes that command - and - control is the most effective way to organize the efforts of large numbers of people, but rapid change and increasing complexity have rendered that model obsolete. As a result, most managers today lack the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in an age when networks are proving smarter and faster than hierarchies.

Designing organizations for mass collaboration demands a new and very different model-wiki management. The book features enlightening examples from forward-thinking companies including Google, Whole Foods, Linux, and Wikipedia.
