Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams

May 31, 2023 - June 1, 2023

€370,00

I’m giving an online workshop to practice continuous improvement in remote and distributed teams on May 31 and June 1 in collaboration with Agile Actors #learning.

Sign up for Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams.

Remote and Distributed Teams

Working with remote or distributed teams can be challenging. Distance and time differences make it more difficult to work together and to collaboratively improve the way of working.

While remote or distributed teams can certainly have advantages over co-located teams, their benefits can only be reached if teams know how to find effective ways to collaborate and communicate and become able to improve continuously.

Working with remote or distributed teams can be challenging. Distance and time differences make it more difficult to work together and to collaboratively improve the way of working.

While remote or distributed teams can certainly have advantages over co-located teams, their benefits can only be reached if teams know how to find effective ways to collaborate and communicate and become able to improve continuously.

Some of the main challenges that remote or distributed teams have are:

  • Establishing ongoing communication between team members
  • Coordinating and synchronizing the work that needs to be done
  • Changing the way the work is done while keeping alignment between different locations where the work is done
  • Dealing with cultural differences and establishing trust between team members

These challenges along with relevant best practices will be discussed during this hands-on workshop.

Who should attend

This 8-hour workshop is intended for:

  • Agile coaches and change agents,
  • Team members of remote/distributed teams,
  • Team, product or project managers,
  • (Senior) managers,
  • Anybody involved in remote collaboration.

What will you learn

This 8-hour virtual workshop helps teams explore the way that they are collaborating and communicating and to find ways to improve and become more effective as a remote or distributed team.

In the hands-on workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Define shared goals, values and principles to work together in an effective way
  • Establish a culture where people respect and trust each other and are open and honest
  • Manage the balance between dependency and autonomy of team members at different locations
  • How to do agile self-assessments and remote retrospectives to reflect on the way of working
