Office Hours and Conformity? – No. Delivery is King!

During one of my CSM classes, I was discussing with a student that her company still has office hours and they are “required” to be online at 9AM… In our new world, why is this still a thing? (Unless you actually have a meeting at 9AM… which changes the context)… I find it fascinating that […]
