Fried on Why Work Doesn’t Happen at the Office

by Dave Michels

Jason Fried is the co-founder of 37 Signals and an outspoken critic of traditional approaches to business. His 2010 TEDx talk titled Work Doesn’t Happen at Work recently resurfaced in some LinkedIn discussions. He is a big proponent of remote work and distributed teams; even credits it as a competitive advantage. Therefore one might assume that this talk was about remote working, but it isn’t. It’s actually about making the office more productive.
