Virtual Team Solutions:
Ensure Your Remote Teams Are Productive, Innovative, And Focused
Remote work creates unique challenges for any organization. But the right structure, system, and tools turn that challenge into an opportunity. We have successfully partnered with organizations large and small to make remote work a competitive advantage.
Equip Remote Workers With What They Need To Succeed
The workflow of many organizations is defined by the colocation created in a shared office space. When that proximity is no longer an option, those processes break down. Leadership and members of distributed teams need a different mindset for remote employees to become high-performing. New working norms, communication pathways, and tools are required. When the right systems are in place, innovation, productivity, and collaboration will thrive.
With the right system, distributed teams can be as productive as traditional teams. When leadership properly enables remote workers, organizations become more agile, adaptable, and successful. Distributed teams and remote work has been a growing trend for years. COVID-19 accelerated this trend. Turn your virtual team of remote employees into a competitive advantage for you and your organization by tapping into a national and/or global workforce, increasing employee productivity and saving over $11,000 annually per employee according to Global Workplace Analytics.
Align on vision and priorities
To continue delivering value to customers, organizations need effective and transparent information radiators that ensure remote workers and teams stay aligned on organizational goals and supporting priorities.
Build the right system
From individual team working agreements and processes to coordinating outputs across an enterprise, remote work requires some changes to your organization’s infrastructure in order to be effective.
better Communication Pathways
There is only so much that can be accomplished over the phone or through email. For remote teams to become high-performing a new mix of informal and formal communication is needed. This new way of communicating will help remote workers focus, innovate, and deliver.
empower remote Collaboration
Transparent, clear, and accessible backlog items, tools and processes that allow remote workers to swarm, shared context and understanding of what everyone is doing and why. These are what allow remote teams to be as productive as those that are colocated.
Remove Roadblocks Quickly
To unlock the potential of remote workers you must identify and remove the impediments to their success. This requires inspection and adaptation of processes and tools. Productivity will soar if these roadblocks are quickly surfaced and removed. If left to linger then quality and output will suffer.
