The goal of any team is the work results, not the time spent in an office working. This paper will identify and evaluate the Three Ts, (Task, Teams and Technology) of contemporary protocols to enable the teleworker to work both effectively and participatory at a distance from a central place of work.
The concept of telework is not new; it may have a new name and the definition of telework may have evolved somewhat with the significant growth in information and communications technology (ICT) and mobile devices, but it is not a new phenomenon. However this framework for understanding and operationalising is an advance beyond the simple provision of the tools required; the spotlight needs to shine on the human dimension. What becomes apparent, no matter the name used, is that virtual work in the 21st Century is about people and how they work and interact in a digital world.
