Over the last ~20 years, we've moved from jokes about "working at home in bunny slippers" and "second class work-from-home jobs" to viewing distributed teams as a competitive advantage. What are the cold, hard, business advantages to this trend that can help you and your organization? How can this trend help your organization hire better, hire faster and improve retention? How can your team or organization work well together even when physically apart? How to grow cultural norms and etiquette to have a meaningful, well-paid career in your teams? Can your organization save money while also addressing important social, diversity, urban planning and environmental issues? This session is for anyone looking for practical tips when working in and leading distributed teams.
