Seven Steps to Successful Virtual Teamwork (OC)

Learn the best practices of managing virtual/remote teams effectively and apply them immediately in the workplace. This live virtual session will be delivered as a two-segment session (Feb 1 & 2, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm each day).

We face a daunting challenge as leaders and managers.  Globalisation, advances in telecommunications and networking technologies, the move towards greener and cleaner organisations, the increasing emphasis on flexible working and work/life balance, and the fragile economic climate, are forcing us to consider innovative ways of managing our impact in our workplaces.  One trend emerging in response to this challenge is an increase in the prevalence of a ‘distributed workforce’ in the form of virtual teams, working in remote settings.  Manifestations of this trend include working from home, in dispersed offices, hot-desking in different offices or regions, and working in different countries and continents.  This shift creates challenges in the way we work, manage, and assess performance.  You will learn, through the Virtual Team Excellence model, best practices on how to manage virtual/remote teams effectively and apply them immediately in the workplace.
