German term or phrase: Vertrauensarbeit
Does anyone know a good translation for "Vertrauensarbeit" in this context?

"Eine zunehmend verbreitete Form, diese Anforderungen zu bewältigen, ist die sog. Vertrauensarbeit; bei der Vereinbarung solcher Formen einigen sich die Parteien auf die Erreichung eines bestimmten Zieles zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt, wobei die Beschäftigten den vorgegebenen Zeitrahmen frei ausgestalten können; wann welche Teilschritte geleistet werden, ist unerheblich, solange der Ablieferungszeitpunkt eingehalten wird.

English translation:trust-based work relationship
Explanation:
I tried a search at Google under "trust-based" and found several US articles using this phrase. It may be a current buzz word for both organizational and individual working relationships.

Thank you. Eventually I chose "trust based work arrangement", but you provided the general idea for that.

work with trust


Explanation:
Seems like horse trainers and high-tech companies have something in common: using trust to get things done.

Searched English pages for "work with trust". Results 41 - 50 of about 6,080. Search took 0.14 seconds

(Since Google ignores "minor" words, an AltaVista search in quotation marks should give you a more specific selection)/
