Due to rapid advances in information and communication technologies (ICTs), IT organisations’ shift to remote-based working has brought several dynamic challenges for the people working virtually. These challenges predominantly link with comprehending the dynamics of working and administrative issues which hinder to achieving favourable outputs. In this article, we attempt to explore factors which could be helpful to achieve productivity while working remotely. We adopt an exploratory style and conducted 25 interviews with IT experts and professionals to find the key components of success while working in remote conditions. The findings were thought-provoking and appeared in the form of a nexus where four key components transacting, teaming, training and tracking were identified to meet the desired motives. The nexus developed thus comprehends the complexities and convolutions within an IT based working environment which could affect the productivity of individuals.
