“If you work, you need this book! Cali and Jody share the secrets of the most radical workplace experiment the Fortune 500 have ever seen. Want 35% greater productivity while going to the movies on a Wednesday afternoon or taking Fridays off? Make the switch from hours to outcomes.”
—Timothy Ferriss, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek

“ROWE is a chance for everyone to learn a better way to work. It encourages people to contribute rather than just show up and grind out their days.”
—Brad Anderson, CEO, Best Buy (from the Foreword)

“Now, this changes everything. Buy this book. Act on what you read.”
—Cindy Froggatt, author of Work Naked

“This is like TiVo for your work.”

“It is a fundamental shift away from ‘face time’ or ‘chair time’ to just one consideration: Did the employee get the job done?”
Minneapolis Star–Tribune

“The freedom, employees say, is changing their lives. They don’t know if they work fewer hours—they’ve stopped counting—but they are more productive.”

“A remarkably persuasive and mind-bending book. Family-friendly, too.”
—Joan Blades, cofounder and


"This is like TiVo for your work." -BusinessWeek

In a results-only workplace, employees can do whatever they want whenever they want, as long as the work gets done. No more pointless meetings, racing to get in at 9:00, or begging for permission to watch your kid play soccer. You make the decisions about what you do and where you do it.

It sounds like a fantasy, but Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson are leading a movement to make it a reality, even implementing it successfully at best buy. They show how a Results-Only Work Environment not only makes employees happier, but also delivers better results.

Filled with passion and common sense, their book will change the way you think about your job, your company, and your quality of life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Revolutionärer Denkanstoß 5. Dezember 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Grundidee, die Zeit als Maßstab für die Bewertung von Arbeitskraft durch eine Ergebnisorientierung abzulösen, ist faszienierend. Meiner Meinung werden sich in Zukunft Personalabteilungen und Organisationsentwicklung vermehrt darüber Gedanken machen müssen. In dem Buch werden die Erfahrungen bei der Einführung mit einem neuen Bewertungsmodell geschildert, die Probleme aber auch die vielen neuen Möglichkeiten.
Wenn man die hohe Produktivität und die Mitarbeiterzufriedenheit nutzen will, benötigt man viele selbstständig denkende und agierende Menschen. Im klassischen Management ist das leider nicht erwünscht.
Das Buch sollte eine Pflichtlektüre für kreative Personaler sein und gibt freiberuflich arbeitenden Menschen viele neue Impulse.
Das System kann sicherlich noch weiterentwickelt werden aber mir hat die offene Schilderung des Projektes sehr gefallen. Ich hoffe auf weitere Bücher in dieser Art. Well done.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Chapter 1 - 3 are great; the rest is filler 22. Mai 2012
Von Kevin Rohrbaugh - Veröffentlicht auf
The basic premise of the book is that employees should be trusted with their time and held accountable for their performance. Most corporations actually approach work in exactly the other way, since it's easier to judge attendance than performance (while often confusing the two completely). It's basically the inside story of Best Buy's development and deployment of their Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE) program, so it's not just a lot of conjecture based on experimental psychology (for that, see Daniel Pink's Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us).

The ideas in the book are important, but it suffers from an extreme case of "books must be 200 pages long". The main ideas and powerful anecdotes that accompany it are only about 75 pages of content, and the other 125 pages are relentless repetition and unnecessary expansion of simple concepts.

It's worth reading the first three chapters, then skim the rest. More importantly, apply the ideas in this book to your own life and change how you view work and time. The world would be a better place if more people approached work from the viewpoint advocated by the authors.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great principle, poorly written book 27. September 2012
Von Isaiah Schisler - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I love the idea of a ROWE, however, throughout the book I felt like they were trying to sell me on the idea the whole time instead of outlining the details of how it should work. It felt more like a sales pitch than a blueprint. And I think it's geared more towards people who are skeptical of the idea. I was sold before I started reading the book, so who knows maybe it's my fault for expecting something else. Either way like I said I like the principles, it just got redundant at points.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant, provocative ideas for transforming the workplace 27. Juni 2013
Von Katrina - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book because it so clearly articulates for me what I've hated about past jobs, and then offers a cohesive strategy (ROWE) for fixing them.

As a professional with 3 kids, I've struggled with negative perceptions from coworkers when I have leave at 4pm to pick up my kids, or have to work from home because one of them has a fever. This is the first book I've read that proposes a truly viable solution that benefits not just working parents, but everyone who wants to have a good job and a good personal life.

The core ideas for here are
1. Rethinking our relationship with time, and
2. Holding people accountable for results

I had my doubts about some of the proposed strategies (e.g., ALL meetings are optional? Isn't that a bit extreme?) so I interviewed one of the authors (Cali Ressler) and she had great answers. You can find the interview here:

The bottom line: If you care about making your company a sane, healthy, and productive place to be, read this book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Guerrilla HR bomb throwers 13. August 2014
Von Ron Immink - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Are you treated like children?

You go to work and give everything you have – and you are treated like children who, if left unattended, will steal candy. You go to work and watch someone who isn’t very good at their job get promoted because they got in earlier and stayed later than anyone else. You go to work and sit through overlong, overstaffed meetings to talk about the next overlong, overstaffed meeting. You see talented, competent, productive people get penalised for having kids, for not being good at office politics, for being a little different.

Ditch the mindset

If any of this resonates with you, then you are by definition an employee – and the organisation you work for holds outdated beliefs about work based on assumptions that do not apply in today’s 24/7 economy. This is the message in Why Work Sucks – and how to fix it, by Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson, who claim that there has to be a better way. This better way is only possible when we change our focus from hours to outcomes, when we ditch our traditional Monday through Friday, 9-5 mindset. The 40-hour work week, say the authors, is outdated and outmoded.


The authors developed a radical workplace experiment known as ROWE – Results-Only Work Environment, where you control when, where, and how long you work. As long as you meet your objectives, the way you spend your time is entirely up to you. Work is no longer a place you go to, it’s a thing you do. ROWE has no mandatory meetings or fixed schedules, you stop doing any activity that wastes time, no one criticizes you for “leaving early” or “coming in late,” and if you do your best work at midnight or on Sundays, that’s fine.

Guerrilla HR bomb throwers

In case you are tempted to regard ROWE as a utopian fantasy, be aware that it is already a reality at the Minneapolis headquarters of consumer electronics chain Best Buy. According to the authors, ROWE not only makes employees happier, but also delivers better results. Businessweek describes the authors as guerrilla HR bomb throwers. Intuitively, the idea of treating employees like grown-ups sounds great. After all, freelancers and salespeople already use ROWE principles in their work. No one can seriously doubt that an incredible amount of time and energy is wasted at work. What the book lacks is a systematic description of how ROWE works in practice. But the book is sure to add to the debate about the way we structure work and the workplace.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A witty look at the workplace! 15. Dezember 2010
Von Pat Burke3085 - Veröffentlicht auf
The authors drive home an often overlooked but truly critical concept for the success of any business -- it's results that truly matter. The book highlights a common problem in today's business world -- that management and employees often fall into the trap of filling their days with a laundry list of unproductive activities, rather than focusing in on areas that will make themselves and their companies truly successful. I love how the authors combined their passion for business, examples of success, with many common sense ideas in an intriguing and informative way. Let's hope the Results-Only Work Environment catches on.
