Yahoo's telecommuting problem is management, not collaboration

Kristin Burnham | March 7, 2013
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's controversial decision to ban employees from working from home led some to question the value of social business tools. Two executives from social business providers say Yahoo's problem isn't about collaborating. It just needs to manage better.

Idinopulos agrees, saying that the ban on working from home is more of a way to identify who's working and who's not, because there are likely no measures in place.

"When you have a management problem, the solution is better management," he says. "You need good tools, discipline, goals, objectives and a way to measure it all. Yahoo needs that whether they have people working from home or not. That's just good management."
