Track Overview

Running Effective Remote Teams

Remote. Distributed. Work-From-Home. Blended. Hybrid. Whatever-your-team-calls-that-thing-you've-been-doing-for-the-last-year. Every single team has experienced change in how they work over the last year. (Yes, even the ones who were already established as distributed teams.) From teams looking to improve an existing distributed practice to those trying to decide if they'll stay "remote", we'll dive deep into what it means to be part of a happy, healthy team. We all know what it's been like for ourselves in the last year and now you'll get a unique opportunity to validate your concerns and learn how the industry leaders are helping teams to enter the next stage of our brave new world.
