In our organization, a few programmers have negotiated the right to
telecommute. Based on measures of Lines Of Code per week, the productivity
of these programmers has gone up. They are experienced programmers with
computer power at home that is equal to or greater than the equipment in the
office. They attend our issues meetings via speaker phone.

I remember earlier discussions on this list which revealed that measures
like Page Per Day for Tech Writers have gone up when they transitioned from
office work to telecommuting.

Does having such measures in place mean that management does not require
face time to figure out who's working and who is not?
Also, does management by objectives (whatever its current buzz-title) play
into this discussion?
