A behind-the-scenes look at the firm behind WordPress.com and the unique remote work culture that contributes to its phenomenal success 50 million websites, or twenty percent of the entire web, use WordPress software. The force behind WordPress.com is a convention-defying company called Automattic, Inc., whose 120 employees work from anywhere in the world they wish, barely use email, and launch improvements to their products dozens of times a day. With a fraction of the resources of Google, Amazon, or Facebook, they have a similar impact on the future of the Internet. How is this possible? What's different about how they work, and what can other companies learn from their methods?
  • Offers a fast-paced and entertaining insider's account of how an amazing, powerful organization achieves impressive results
  • Learn how a manager transitioned to leading remote work / distributed team
  • Includes vital lessons about work culture and managing creativity
  • Written by author and popular blogger Scott Berkun (scottberkun.com)
The Year Without Pants shares what every organization can learn from the world-changing ideas for the future of work at the heart of Automattic's success.

From the Inside Flap

What happens when an old-school management guru leaves the books and lectures behind to lead a young team at a revolutionary company, with no email, no offices, and no rules? The answer is an amazing and entertaining book about the future of work.

Automattic, Inc., runs WordPress.com, the 15th most popular website on the planet, and is the leading organization behind WordPress, the software that powers 20 percent of the entire web—60 million sites and counting. Their success is based on challenging our biggest assumptions about how work is done:
  • Employees work remotely, from wherever in the world they wish
  • No one uses email, preferring customized blogs and online chat
  • There are no schedules, few meetings, and fewer rules
  • Workers launch new ideas and features dozens of times a day

Scott provides an entertaining read about new ways of working, albeit from a few years ago. A key part is around moving from siloed groups into open, collaborative ad hoc teams. He's got a new book coming out on design awareness that will be worth looking at
Ordered straight away for the holiday reading list! Interesting book about Automattic - the company behind WordPress.com. Wordpress is a great example of what a small, agile, remote working team can do in competition with Google, Microsoft etc. Recommended for anyone with an interest in online marketing, web design, internet business etc.
