For those of you following the latest in business philosophy a ROWE is a Results Oriented Work Environment. At a high level this is a work environment with lots of autonomy. For example there is no time clock or set start time. My question is, can you really have a ROWE and still maintain control over your business? Let’s take a real example – like a law firm. Can you develop a work culture where the only performance factor is results? Considering some of the hot buttons – no dress code, no start or stop time, no requirement to even be in the office.
