Top Tips and Resources for Working Remotely

As more and more companies are moving to remote/virtual team collaboration, there is a wealth of strategies we can leverage to shorten learning curves and enhance productivity.

In our recent webinar, participants shared their top suggestions for working remotely:

  • Double down on the Agile ceremonies
  • Set team norms for working remotely
  • Design your meeting, beyond the agenda
  • Test your tools and internet (connect through hardwire when possible)
  • Learn and use online collaboration tools (see list below)
  • Brush up on effective facilitation and engagement skills for virtual meetings
  • Plan for Plan B (tech failure, screen share, audio, background noise)
  • Plan for icebreakers and get-to-know-you activities
