Discover the power of what a fully distributed team can do for your organization
Many are saying that we’re entering a new dawn of work culture; that unforeseen circumstances have fast-tracked the vision of remote work into a reality. While we believe accelerators have played a part, we would say that the sun has been up for a while regarding the future of work being married with digital capabilities.
WillDom believes this because we’ve been living and breathing the power of what fully agile teams can do for the past nine years. The entire business model of WillDom was born from this concept, and we’ve seen the biggest companies in the world not only adopt, but see great success in what remote technical teams can do for their digital transformation efforts.
For those companies starting to invest in a digital work model, or even those who already have this in place, here are a few key learnings on leading fully distributed teams:
Many companies are entering a time of the unknown - the challenges of adopting a digital model, how their team will respond, in what ways this will impact business processes, and goals. Once organizations start this shift, they’re going to see incredible benefits and more opportunities, and the mindset will shift. In leading fully dedicated teams, it’s important to establish trust at the beginning of the relationship, and not make team members earn it. Finally, be constantly curious about how technology can further enable your organization, instead of being locked-in on your current stack.
