Remote work has a directionality to it that confuses me. Remote from what?
"Synchronous" and "asynchronous", I understand. They are dimensions of behaviours available to me.
The one I am now tracking is "connected" to "disconnected". Which leaves me with:
- Synchronously connected: The sweet spot that is not always possible.
- Synchronously disconnected: The worst spot. Experienced in many corporates.
- Asynchronously disconnected: An active indication that something has to change.
- Asynchronously connected: The one I have yet to figure out. In my experience, it is an unstable state that degenerates quickly to Asynchronously disconnected.
