No longer is it a special case for companies and their teams to find themselves in a meeting with participants who aren’t sitting (or standing) in the room with them. It’s critical for clients and stakeholders to be involved in communicating and coordinating with external partners. Teams are often distributed or they have individual team members who work remotely. Since I’m a remote employee who is a part of a local Scrum team at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, I have a lot of experience in this area which I’d like to share with you in this article.

The dynamics of the modern-day business world mean that even large corporations cannot shy away from the changes that need to be made in organizational structures to keep up. Here we look at what organizations and employees can do to make their companies and corporations more agile and robust to the complexity and dynamics of today’s markets.
The process of transitioning into a modern agile company has come with occasional growing pains. We had to take many of our traditional ways of thinking and throw them out of the window. Several of our classic methods and tools ended up being mothballed. Power had to be redistributed. See how Martin explains his approach as a leader in an agile company in this keynote presentation at Audi AG in Ingolstadt.
You can use a variety of different methods and tools to support you as you plan for your team. Some of them integrate playful elements into the process (gamification) and want to promote productive exchanges from within the team. In this webinar with Jacek Wizmur-Szymczak and Pawel Mazur from Spartez, we stepped through and discussed Agile Poker for Jira.

Technical teams in many companies work happily and successfully with Jira – but software that has a reputation for being a development system is not normally something which the Average Joe can also use for their work. When such a person starts working with Jira for the first time, they may be a little overwhelmed by the depth of the system’s many features and functions. Nevertheless, we and many of our customers use Jira with completely different teams and company departments. The advantages of Jira are not limited to just our technical teams. You can clearly see the advantages that Jira brings to all sorts of teams when you focus on its ability to be transparent, its visualizations and how it inspires collaboration rather than technical integration.
In the previous two posts, I’ve covered the question of why remote work may be a good thing for your company, and who is suited to remote work. Now I want to look at what you need to do to make the introduction of a remote work environment a success.
In the best case, the typical ‘business theater’ in classical companies is a waste of potential and working time. In the worst case, however, it can also be dangerous for the whole organization. If employees are empowered to think for themselves and take on responsibility and initiative, they will make wise decisions and contribute to a more modern, flexible organization, collaborating more closely with customers, and be better equipped to handle complexity.
