Strengthen Teams, Build People

The challenge of building high-performance remote teams

The challenges of the pandemic have forced organizations to rethink how people are brought together in a safe and effective manner.  We know it is possible to build remote teams that perform at or better than traditional co-located teams.  The advantage of the technology world we live in is that we have already been effectively integrating teams across the world for years.  So, what have we learned so far?

  • Is it possible to build remote teams as effective as co-located teams?
  • Is it possible to maintain the culture of an organization across remote teams?
  • Is it possible to develop a sense of belonging in remote team members to drive commitment?

We believe that an experienced and committed team can make the jump to the new distributed/remote world and emerge stronger than ever.

In this issue of The Dev Digest, we explore ideas on how to go remote without missing a beat, just in time for the reopening of the business world.

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, articles and podcasts about building more resilient technology organizations:
