Part-time Work 

Improvising New Careers An excellent academic study of reduced workload arrangements for managers and professionals, by McGill Management professor Mary Dean Lee. Key findings include: career advancement slowed but did not stop, responsibility for subordinates was NOT a stumbling block (though this did depend on how independent the subordinates were), support of the senior manager is essential, those who were supportive saw it as a way to avoid losing a star performer or to recruit talent, need trial periods and fine tuning with experience.
