The Challenges of Working in a Remote Team
July 12, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+8
“Distributed Teams are the future of work. A lot of us are still getting used to the globalization and transitions and new structures of how we work today. That is totally understandable. Change can be scary for some, and of course there are a couple outlier challenges with distributed teams, but with the rapid innovation in technology like online communication, secure video meetings and productivity tools at our disposal “Offices will be a thing of the past” (Richard Branson).
Some of the biggest and most successful companies are distributed across the globe, look at Microsoft. The best part of this is also the fact that startups in a global market are much more agile. Distributed work, when managed right, is much more engaging and team members are dedicated to what they do. They even end up logging more hours, but not because they have to, because they want to and are simply driven by the company’s vision. It no longer becomes work and a series of mundane execution of tasks.
During this upcoming skill sharing session, Christin will be looking at the challenges of working in distributed teams. Challenges such as:
1.How to maintain good communication in a distributed team
