One of the things that I did when I was working at Sun Microsystems was to help develop tools and systems to give Sun employees the best, most productive and effective work environment possible. The products that we developed included a work from home program, a flexible office program and change management and collaborations tools among other things. The program was called Open Work or iWork and I am very proud to have been a part of it.

My guest on the podcast today is Eric Richert who was my boss  during my last few years at Sun. Eric was Vice President, of Open Work Solutions at Sun.
