Remote work is essential

Giles Bowkett, Agile is Overripe:

The bizarre thing about most companies in this category, however, is that although they absolutely depend on the success of remote work and async dev, and although they absolutely and literally could not exist without the effectiveness of remote work and async dev, they nonetheless require their employees to all work in the same place at the same time… A software development process that doesn’t acknowledge this technological reality is just silly.

This is a little out of context, but it’s a good point regarding remote work in the modern age. It’s also a great point about how SCRUM/Agile is no longer effective.
