What is a chain of reasoning?

Statement 1: Innovation requires people to collaborate. 
Statement 2: Remote work is bad for companies.
  • People need to have different areas of expertise and skills.
  • New areas of synergies (innovation) require that diverse knowledge is combined.
  • The combination of diverse areas of knowledge leads to innovation.
  • Innovation are things (processes, products, services, artifacts) that are different from the things that already exists.
  • People have different areas of expertise (link 1). When people come together (link 2) they tell each other what they know (link 3).
  • When people tell each other what they know (link 3) it is clear how their diverse knowledge can be combined (link 4) to create innovation (link 5).

Statement 2: Remote work is bad for companies

  • When team members are not located in the same place (link 1) they perform less well (link 2). High performance (link 2 — just phrased differently) requires that team members interact with each other face to face (link 3).
  • Employees who are not physically where their managers is (link 1), perform at a lower level (link 2), because they are distracted (link 4), or do not know what they need to do (link 5).

It takes practice
