Are you planning to expand remote working and carry out more projects online? Make sure you have good communication and collaboration tools to support your team. #businessadvice #remoteworking #projectmanagement
We’re living in a world where remote and hybrid working are now the norm. Driven by lockdowns and the pandemic, businesses have been forced to adopt a ‘working from home’ approach. And this ability to work remotely has driven productivity and efficiency for some companies but can create its own challenges.
Designing your workflows for remote working
When a whole team, or even a percentage of a team, are no longer sitting in the same office space, there are some very specific considerations to bear in mind. How do they access the systems they need? Where is all the company and customer data stored? How can people collaborate? What’s the best way to communicate?
If you’re going to make it easy to manage a project with a remote or hybrid team, you absolutely need to think through these questions and come up with some practical answers.
As the benefits and flexibility of remote working become more widely felt, we’re likely to see even more projects being run remotely – with employees no longer clustered in the same office 5 days per week. So, if you want to keep your competitive advantage, you need to be ready.
