Establecer una buena relación con nuestros colegas es un aspecto esencial del trabajo conjunto. Cuando los equipos se distribuyen por todo el mundo, no es tan fácil cultivar un alto nivel de confianza y la colaboración y comunicación requiere más esfuerzo. Trabajar juntos en una oficina física nos permite vernos y oírnos y nos ayuda a mejorar nuestras interacciones. Recientemente, nos vimos forzados a no tener esos encuentros cotidianos, por lo cual tuvimos que innovar en nuestros procesos de comunicación para informar activamente a los miembros de nuestro equipo sobre el trabajo que hemos realizado o que estamos realizando apoyándonos en la tecnología. Durante el conversatorio los participantes: .- Identificarán el concepto de “MBWA” en su versión digital para equipos distribuidos. .- Reconocerán los 4 elementos importantes a considerar para dar visibilidad y transparencia a la gestión del trabajo en equipos remotos. .- Identificarán cómo incorporar estos 4 elementos en sus equipos de trabajo. .- Recibirán algunas recomendaciones basadas en la experiencia del expositor sobre el tema. .- Recibiran un conjunto de herramientas digitales de soporte a estos 4 elementos para aplicar en equipos remotos. Las herramientas a utilizar serán: Mentimeter, Miro y Zoom.
The Raleigh Durham (RTP – Research Triangle Park) Chapter of the Agile Leadership Network is hosting our annual OpenSpace Conference. This year the conference is coordinated with the Agile20Reflect Festival.
Our organizing theme is “The Pandemic and Onward.” For many in technology, remote working and distributed teams are familiar territory. In other business sectors, like financial and manufacturing, the pandemic isolation has been a disruption. For personal services and hospitality, its been nothing short of a disaster.
Outside of business, the pandemic has turned the modern dilemma of a person who is “alone in a crowd” into a person who is “in a crowd alone.” Our contact with others is mediated through apps and telecommunication devices. At one time we have never been more connected while being so apart.
And, yet, we see adaptation, innovation, and change: theaters stream live performances and musicians sell concerts from their living rooms; Zoom has become synonymous with on-line conferencing with families and friends; schools consider a future where there are no more snow days.
How has the pandemic disrupted the workplace? What role has Agile played in the response to the disruption? Which of these changes are lasting? What does the Future of Work look like after the pandemic has ended?
Join us to explore the past, present, and future of Agile through the lens of the global pandemic and our response to it.
Up until the pandemic, many people offered advice to agile teams who wanted to include remote people: “Don’t do that!” However, we’ve all been dispersed since March. And, many of us aren’t going “back” to work for months. Some companies aren’t even planning a return date—and some have given up their buildings. Remote is now a fact of life. That means the common advice, “Don’t do that!” doesn’t help distributed agile teams.
However, many distributed agile teams have problems using agile approaches—because those teams focus on practices. Instead, consider how you can apply the eight principles for your successful distributed team. Aside from the principles, you’ll learn the few metrics you need (not velocity!) and how you might optimize your remote team’s agility to deliver the outcomes your business needs.

Join us as we share games we have played with leaders and teams to encourage growth and benefit mindsets, shared values, and highlight the importance of trust in an organization. We have used these games to create better team dynamics with remote teams. Playing games creates space for people to safely consider their own blind spots as individuals, leaders, and team members.
