Continuous Improvement in Remote and Distributed Teams

...
This is a virtual classroom course. You can find more information about our virtual classroom here

Working with remote or distributed teams can be challenging. Distance and time differences make it more difficult to work together and to collaboratively improve the way of working.

While remote or distributed teams can certainly have advantages over co-located teams, their benefits can only be reached if teams know how to find effective ways to collaborate and communicate and become able to improve continuously.

A discount is available when:
  • a single customer proceeds with more than three registrations for a particular session;
  • a learner is not currently employed.
Please contact us to receive your discount coupon if you meet any of the above-mentioned criteria.

Please also note that the upcoming sessions are guaranteed to run once they have a minimum number of learners registered.

  • Coordinating and synchronize the work that needs to be done
  • Changing the way the work is done while keeping alignment between different locations where the work is done

These challenges along with relevant best practices will be discussed during this hands-on workshop.
