Managing Telecommuters and Virtual Teams
Few of us sit directly beside a team member or coworker. Most of us are spread over distances, whether it is across town or across the planet. Managing Telecommuters and Virtual Teams will teach participants skills to help manage people and projects virtually.
This workshop will teach skills to help managers build rapport with team members that stand the test of distance. Participants will learn techniques to adapt their current skills to lead in virtual and remote situations. The instructors will demonstrate technologies that can be used to support virtual teams. Participants in this workshop will explore project management in a virtual world and the available online tools for managing successful projects including Google Apps, zoho project, Basecamp, and various open source tools.
