The Pain:

Distributed teams become confused, isolated, and frustrated leading to slow delivery, repeated conversations, and dangerous assumptions. This leads to rework, stress, and missed deadlines.

The Solution:

Become a real team with information available when you need it, predictable communication, and real-time project updates so you can make good decisions, have less meetings, and finish on time.

Supercharge your Team Now!

Working with distributed teams and remote workers can provide organizations access to the best talent, regardless of their location. But managing a virtual workforce poses unique challenges:

  • What is the best way to maintain contact among members?
  • How do you communicate work, manage and improve processes?
  • How do you respond to unexpected changes effectively?
  • How do you build healthy working relationships when you rarely meet in person?
  • How do you create and maintain alignment?
  • What metrics should you use to track projects and improve processes?
  • How do you ensure work gets completed as expected?

This course solves these problems and more.
