New York transit strike: virtual workaround
David Goldes COO of Basex in A Wake-Up Call For Collaboration comments on the New York City's transit strike which although it only lasted 60 hours is estimated to have cost the city's economy $1 billion even though many were able to continue working virtually.
Many knowledge workers stayed home and used e-mail and other collaboration tools to conduct business.
David comments that whilst this adhoc approach might work for a few days it would be totally inadequate in the event of a longer crisis, such as a pandemic influenza which could last for three months or longer.
In Virtual teams, disaster recovery and business continuity planning, I discuss how collaboration technologies and virtual teams can play a critical role in business contingency, disaster and crisis management in organisations.
