Tips for Managing a Geographically Dispersed Team

  1. 1. Source: http://www.wired.com/2013/06/the-new-workplace-reality-out-of-the-office/ TIPS FOR MANAGING A Geographically Dispersed Team 34 Million Americans work from home. 63 Million Americans are expected to work from home by 2016. Arm your team with the right tools and encourage user adoption. The “right” tools make it easy to encourage user adoption because they simplify your employees’ days and help them get work done faster and with less stress. Look for tools that reduce team reliance on email to achieve significant efficiency boosts and greater user adoption. Ensure lines of communication are open. Regularly scheduled time to talk can make sure that miscommunications are kept to a minimum. Message feed-type interaction tools are an absolute must. This trend comes with challenges and benefits. Use these tips to minimize the challenges so you can make the most of the benefits. Schedule face-to-face time. Scheduling time to meet in person (or at least by on-line meeting)—whether weekly, quarterly, or yearly—is critical to building and maintaining your company culture. Focus on deliverables, not activities. Trying to manage your remote employees’ specific activities will wear you and your teams down. Instead, track their deliverables. Bring your team together with the right platform for collaboration! Cureo is an easy-to-use collaboration platform that integrates with Google Drive, Dropbox, and other tools you’re probably already using. Cureo brings a new level of organization and efficiency—making remote communication and collaboration easier, so you can focus on the job at hand. You can even extend that organization and efficiency to clients and others outside your organization to bring them into the fold to get work done. Foster community. Leverage systems, solutions, and meetings to encourage ownership, community, collaboration, and celebration. You are still a team, regardless of where everyone sits. About Cureo: Cureo is a web-based collaboration platform that creates instant, secure, social company intranets and client extranets for organizations looking to productively engage their constituents to reduce reliance on email, advance commerce and get things done. www.cureo.com Hire independent people. Because it’s more difficult to give remote employees attention, they need to be comfortable working—and producing—without a lot of direct oversight. Your management style will need to evolve, focusing in team leadership and buy–in of the independent worker. Technology has enabled a NEW WAY TO WORK.
