The Year Without Pants: WordPress.Com and the Future of Work
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
50 million websites, or twenty percent of the entire web, use WordPress software. The force behind WordPress.com is a convention-defying company called Automattic, Inc., whose 120 employees work from anywhere in the world they wish, barely use email, and launch improvements to their products dozens of times a day. With a fraction of the resources of Google, Amazon, or Facebook, they have a similar impact on the future of the Internet. How is this possible? What's different about how they work, and what can other companies learn from their methods?
To find out, former Microsoft veteran Scott Berkun worked as a manager at WordPress.com, leading a team of young programmers developing new ideas. The Year Without Pants shares the secrets of WordPress.com's phenomenal success from the inside. Berkun's story reveals insights on creativity, productivity, and leadership from the kind of workplace that might be in everyone's future.

Written by author and popular blogger Scott Berkun (scottberkun.com)

"Sometimes you find a book which you simply can't not read. The Year Without Pants was one of them." (The BookBag, October 2013) Those looking for observations about the changing nature of the workplace won't be disappointed, but equally this is far from being just a passionless futurist text; Berkun infuses the whole book with real humour and gives an excellent personal account of the inner working of one of the world's most unorthodox enterprises." (Elite Business, November 2013)
