From zero to home office

Problems and Challenges

Your boss thinks that working at home is just drinking coffee and lying on the couch in pyjamas? Quite the contrary! In fact, a study by the US elite university Stanford shows that employees are significantly more productive at home. So what does that mean? That you have to switch from zero to home office! Because even though half of all jobs are done on the computer, only 12% of all Germans work from their home office. We accompany you with a master plan and our checklists through the new working world and show you how to set yourself up well for the competition at home.

A great mix of focus on humans and enthusiasm for technology

Always at the cutting edge of development, ADM uses processes and technology in such a way that it can react quickly and very agile to the most diverse developments. The resulting knowledge about efficient working from home (home office) or on the road (remote work) is now shared with others for the first time in this book.

The perfect companion for the current issues in the home office!

I have experienced Ulrike and Andreas Dolle as absolute pioneers of the digital transformation of education and communication. They are well informed about all the technical possibilities, they try things out themselves and know from their own experience exactly what actually works. Their valuable input from this book has brought me personally up to date.
