The management implications of mobility and flexible working will be the topics of the Computer Weekly 500 Club's last two meetings of the year.

On 10 November the 500 Club will discuss IT directors' personal responsibilities in mobile computing plans, what is needed to define a mobility strategy and the decision processes. The meeting will look at how the use of mobile technology is driven through an organisation and consider the services and products that companies will need to subscribe to.

Continuing the theme of catering for a distributed workforce, the government's promotion of flexible working could have serious implications for IT directors, the meeting of the 500 Club will hear on 8 December.

It will be their responsibility to provide the infrastructure for flexible working, and enabling flexibility will mean changes in the way IT directors construct and manage their IT strategies.

Leading IT professionals at the meeting will discuss how they go about constructing a strategy for flexible working, and how they envisage remote workers connecting to networks.

The meeting will consider what new resources and technologies will be needed to support secure and reliable flexible working, and the organisational and legal changes necessary to make it a success.
