How about working 72 hours a week?
Forget about the good ol’ 40, 50 or even 60-hour work week. In the new networked economy where 24/7 access to information is the norm, executives, managers, and professionals are connected to their jobs up to 72 hours a week.
Here is the thing: we don’t mind being connected to work for more than eight hours a day. But we are upset when companies use 24/7 connectedness to compensate for organizational inefficiencies: useless meetings and emails, inadequate technology, disorganized or incompetent C-suites, and unclear decision-making authority.
