Teamwork for many of us now means staying local and working with distributed colleagues. This is a fabulous trend (WORK was founded with this in mind!) with amazing benefits, but also real challenges. Join us for a practical talk about maximizing the efficiency of working in this new reality:
• Reviewing the context of remote and distributed teams (common challenges & benefits)
• Framing a mindset of maximum efficiency (“chasing the sun”, gaining back hours)
• Practical tools to keep groups in synch (Slack, Skype, and more)
• Process and management, approaches that can work (Agile and more)
$10 at the door for Non WORK Members – help us keep the lights on and keep great programs coming your way! WORK Members FREE including Friends of WORK! (a special membership level for you regular attendees)
Noon-1 PM in the WORK Library. Feel free to bring a bag lunch.
