Working from home? (School-based IT Managers)
Here's a quick one for you...
How many School-Based IT Support Staff / Managers work from home?
Is it something anyone has ever done / does sometimes / does often?
I ask, as I have found it increasingly difficult to actually get any real work done!
I have web design, policy re-writes, vision-writing and quotes coming out of my ears but get interupted with password changes and sales calls while my other staff are out on calls etc (I know.... partly my fault for not inforcing FITS / ITIL!)
I came home at 4pm today and actually got more done in an hour than I did all day!
I could easily configure my office phone to forward to my home phone, I can TS in to work and then use internal VNC tools if needed, I have email.... so the only thing to get over is the fact that those less familiar with IT might just assume I'm staying at home to top up a tan!
I'd be interested to hear people's opinions (not just based on if I should - more along the lines of if "we" should?!)
