Speech description

As a start-up, we are in the middle of this trend where we are having teams embedded with remote vendors and have our own teams who are partly remote. In this presentation we will provide the pro’s and cons together with the pitfalls of remote work.

Communication – How do you make your vendor ready for working with remote teams and where does the challenge lie in managing and finishing a project successfully.

Tools – Not every tool is suitable for the job. We selected and test the most successful tools to work with a remote team or/and cooperate with a remote vendor.

Process & People – The standards and values in a project, how do you align your team with the values a remote vendor might have and how do we overcome this.

People – People make or break any cooperation, whether in team or in cooperation with vendors. How do build a cohesive distributive team in line with the vendors values where not treading your own in the process
