Distributed teams are becoming more commonplace. As far as organizational structures go, this certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand it's great to get to work in your pajamas, but on the other hand, it can be hard to work together and manage a team without valuable face time. When you work as a consultancy, time is literally money; so, it's important to schedule your team so they log enough hours to meet your billable targets. In this session, we will discuss tools and pointers for motivating your remote team and getting the most out of their time.
Have you thought about letting your team members work remotely but aren't quite ready to take that leap of faith? Hopefully this session will help persuade you that with the right checks and balances you can have a very productive team without bringing everyone into an office.
Maybe you don't have a choice, your team works from a communal office and it's going to stay that way. That's okay - optimal time management is important for any team, this session will have some good pointers for you, too!
