As well, every single huckster, crackpot, charlatan, snake oil salesman, and con artist that you can think of is all of a sudden claiming to be a Remote Workforce Consultant and busy producing virtual webinars and conferences designed to offer advice on best practices for Managing a Remote Workforce.
In fact, hundreds of them have even contacted ME in order to offer ME help on how to manage a remote workforce. I believe that says it all about these new experts.
But here is the real question: Is having your employees "working remotely" the solution to the current global pandemic?
The answer is categorically NO. In fact, that is the WRONG solution. This is the response of a "Virtually-Disoriented Brick-and-Mortar Executive Scoundrel" grabbing for straws - someone who never took time to prepare for Business or Government Continuity in the event of any cataclysmic event.
So much for the farcical and mythical Emergency & Disaster Preparedness Plans that these organizations and governments supposedly had in place.The point being, over the past 20 years, I have been evangelizing to Global Enterprises, Academia, and Governments across the globe on the Imperative Need for a highly sophisticated and disciplined "Virtual Organization Leadership Force" based on the virtual organization management discipline that is able to respond INSTANTLY to Global Pandemics, Force Majeure Events (i.e., Acts of God or Nature, Cataclysmic Events), Nuclear Wars, Tactical Nuclear Wars, Conventional War, Color Revolutions, Ransomware Attacks, Debilitating Cyber Attacks on a Country's Vital and Critical Infrastructures, Overt or Covert Manipulation of the Global Financial System, Meltdown of the Global Financial System, Internal Destabilization, Total Breakdown of Social Order and Stability, etc.
However, that being said, better late than never! The Urgency of Now exists for all these organizations and governments to utilize this crisis as an opportunity to finally Do The Right Thing. That means, digging their head out of the sand, and begin the process of Learning How to Build A Virtual Organization Leadership Force for their organization, institution or government.
