Wake up! Go beyond telework -- Creating an accountability culture -- Motivate me. No pizza party, please -- The importance of trust -- S.M.A.R.T goals = senseless minutia against random tasks -- Down with billable hours, up with results -- 24/7 kicks 9-5's ass -- Focus on what matters -- No more bullshit meetings. Period -- Delighting the customer -- Results. Not for every job? -- Results-only competency-based education -- ROWE in the public sector
