Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams – Virtual Course

February 15, 2021 - February 17, 2021

Join my workshop Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams as an online virtual course on February 16 and 17, 2021, in collaboration with Agile Actors #learning. Sign up.

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 synchronize 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.

Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams

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
  • Define and execute actions to improve collaboration and communication
  • Improve using tools for collaboration and communications

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.
