Book: Far From the Factory, Lean for the Information AgeToday’s companies are facing new challenges in the workplace as employees take to the Internet for all things work-related. There is an unprecedented volume of knowledge being created and consumed by workers. How should a small to medium sized business manage these processes?

Intervals customer George Gonzalez-Rivas has published a book to address these concerns. Far From the Factory, Lean for the Information Age, describes the tools and techniques needed to adapt to the technology-rich, service-oriented office.

One important factor to consider when organizing your team are the tools you will use for collaboration and management.
