One Global Team, One Global Dream: The Art of Managing a Remote Team

Posted by Rebecca Parker on Feb 22, 2017 1:28:48 PM

The logistics involved in managing a team that works in the same building are complicated enough, so managing a remote team with members dispersed across the globe is often an  unenviable task.

It will surprise no one to hear that leading a virtual team  requires a drastic rethinking of the management styles used vs. those required to manage  staff members who work in the same location. That’s because a remote team is less like a set of satellites revolving around a single planet, and more like a solar system of individual planets, all following different trajectories that occasionally intersect.

So what are the important differences to consider when managing a global team?

Regardless of what your business sells, what you’re actually dealing in is time. The time it takes to pull together a strategy; the time your developers spend working on a product; the time you lose trying to coordinate a meeting with someone on the other side of the world who takes seven hours to reply to your emails...

Triumphantly pressing send on the last email of the day, you glance at the time. It is 10:22 PM and, once again, you have worked long past the end of your 'work day'.

Running a business can feel like running on a treadmill.

Managing Student Accommodation Viewings? Try Something New This Semester

Posted by Rebecca Parker on Jan 16, 2017 10:26:00 AM

Right about now the more organised students among the population might be thinking about where they’re going to live next year -- particularly if Joe’s habit of piling rubbish up on the bin lid instead of just putting the bag out is starting to wear thin and they’re thinking they might try their luck with a different set of housemates. That means the rush to get the best flats is about to start, and that means letting agents and student accommodation companies are about to have a lot of viewings to manage.

What has historically been experienced as a bit of a scrum -- group viewings followed by a Wacky Races-style dash to sign the lease -- actually needn’t be. Thanks to the rise in SaaS (Software as a Service), making use of the latest developments in technology no longer requires the big budgets of major agencies for custom development work. So even small firms can now be innovative in the way they use the tools available to make the property letting process smooth, streamlined, and even a little bit trendy.

Well, aside from those odd few that make you think Sartre might have met them right before he wrote “Hell is other people”, there’s also the little task of finding them. And keeping them coming back. And generally keeping on top of them in terms of confirming, reminding, rescheduling, reminding again...
