Director of Entrepreneurship Michael Goldberg comments on the work-from-home phenomenon

In a crisis, there’s no place like home

Crain’s Cleveland Business: Michael Goldberg, executive director of the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship and an associate professor of design and innovation at the Weatherhead School of Management, weighed in on the phenomenon of employees working from home in the wake of the virus outbreak: “It is interesting because I think many of us who aren’t used to kind of like working from home probably hadn’t battle tested our home networks,” Goldberg said. “Before you’ve got your important work call or before your kids are going online for their classes, test everything. Test the microphone, test the video camera, test the connectivity before you really need it.”
