Forget BYOD. Welcome to the era of BYOO (bring your own office)

OK, I'm calling it. The controversy is over. The results are in. The remote work trend will continue growing indefinitely, and nobody can stop it. More to the point, nobody should stop it.

Remote work is expanding. With each passing year, more kinds of technology-driven options are emerging. Work-from-home employees. Co-working space workers. Digital nomads. Overseas employees. "Flex" employees. Telepresence-robot workers.

Just as the reality of consumer devices drove the BYOD policy trend, the reality of remote work demands the systematic thinking and communication of a bring your own office (BYOO) policy.
