Remote work can provide healthy distance during the COVID-19 pandemic and also helps to minimize an organization’s greenhouse gas emissions. But becoming an efficient distributed organization is not an easy feat. We at Edgeryders have been a distributed organization for a long time. But, even we have to continuously improve our own practices and support others to do the same.
In 2019 we conducted in depth research on effective practices for distributed and remote work in collaboration with EIT Climate Kic, Europe’s leading Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy. We are currently pulling it all together into an extensive manual for running distributed teams and organisations.
During this 20-minute event, Edgeryders will present our research insights around five key areas of good practice: communication, collaboration, socializing, tools and organization building.
This event is a friendly space to share and discuss your findings, experiences and good practices with distributed collaboration. Edgeryders co-founders Matthias and Nadia will provide some scaffolding for that discussion through a brief overview of our learnings around running distributed teams and organisations so far.
