As management consultants, we are constantly working with several teams at multiple locations and often in different time zones. TARGUS is typically on-site, working alongside clients, 5 days a week. However, due to this crisis remote collaboration has become part of our daily business.
Whether routine team meetings, management status reports, or a demanding workshop with several working groups and breakout sessions, we regularly tackle all sorts of scenarios during our project work. Especially in the current COVID-19 crisis, working together with our customers in remote workplace settings for entire projects has increased significantly.
Using webcams in video conferences alone is not enough for effective collaboration. Teams need to be led and managed effectively from their home offices as well. Having the right communication tool is more important than ever. Advanced IT tools enable effectiveness and team collaboration.
Selecting the correct tool for your team should not be taken lightly. You are committing to a new way of working. Evaluate your options and identify the tools which fit your organizations way of working to avoid suffering a loss in productivity due to new challenges.
