The effects of IBM's new co-location policy have hit close to home this week at IBM Connect 2017. I have had numerous IBMers basically say good-bye this week. They either have been given their notice and have no intention of moving, or they see the writing on the wall. Some are even leaving IBM immediately after the conference. It hit me this morning that over two-thirds of the conversations I am having with IBMers this week ends with 'I am interviewing' or 'I will not be moving and leaving sometime before summer.' The thought that the company with the DNA of one the most successful software products ever created to facilitate remote team collaboration is requiring everyone on a team to be in the same home office is almost inconceivable. But when you look at it from a capital expense vs. operating expense, you understand what is going on. I feel like I need to shower every time I realize the facts behind the policy.
