FCW Forum: Managers as teleworkers?

GSA Administrator Lurita Doan recently suggested one way to overcome management resistance to telework: Encourage managers to try it themselves. "Many of those who argue the loudest against telework are actually those who have never tried it," she said. Doan made the suggestion in a speech in which she laid out GSA's new telework goal: 50 percent of its eligible employees teleworking by 2010. You can read the complete story here. Do you believe managers can telework and still get their jobs done? In the same speech, Doan said that outside research and her own experience have shown that the productivity of teleworkers is equal to or better than that of office-bound workers. Does your experience support that assertion?
