In part 1 I explored how selecting the right employees was one of the key factors in managing a geographically dispersed team. In this part I will dig a little further into what it takes to successfully manage teams that need to work together even though they may be across the country or across the globe through communications.
Establish Communications One of the most critical elements to team dynamics is communication.
Before the days of web conferencing, video chats, instant messages, and overall unified communications presence it was difficult to manage people who weren’t present in your location. Now, people can be present without really being present. Whether your employee teams are in the same building, city, or even country you can host video conferences where you can share your screen for all to see and even allow others to provide feedback with the click of a mouse.
