I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

Most organizations currently find themselves at Level 2. I am now fairly certain that if a leadership team is not intentional about moving their teams up to Level 4 their foray into remote working will stall and they will fall back to the old way of working.

Would you agree?
