Engaging remote project teams during the coronavirus
With the normalisation of virtual meeting platforms and working from home during this difficult period of the novel coronavirus pandemic, it is essential to enable remote working and project team collaboration. If working from home and remotely is new to you, then have no fear. The presence of virtual project teams has a prominent place in the modern day project roadmap for any forward-thinking team and organisation.
While these tools are fantastic at bringing teams together and opening up much needed team dialogue, participating in sessions can be socially challenging. If you have ever been on a call with an offshore team and spent the first few minutes in awkward silence while looking at the array of smiling but worried faces, you are not alone.
