Thanks to the modernization and digitalization of teamwork in enterprises, the organizational and technological obstacles to remote work are lower than ever before. As such, distributed project teams have been commonplace for quite some time now. But old habits are hard to break, and this is most apparent when it comes to meetings. Here we look at common reservations when it comes to video meetings and how to overcome them.

It is clear there is only so much synchronous communication a person can participate in. There is a natural limit to the amount of time you can spend coordinating with others in real-time, and ultimately, the rhythm of your workday defines the upper limit.

In order to avoid misunderstandings, I’d like to explain what happens in Scrum meetings, why they are important for the project, and what the customer gets out of them.
At //SEIBERT/MEDIA, we strive to incorporate agile concepts and methods outside of software development, throughout the entire company and extend them to work for all processes. An important tool within our agile organization is the Open Space, the so-called “unconference”.
Wikipedia is by far the best-known example of a wiki. This web lexicon is what most people immediately think of when they hear the word wiki. It’s not surprising, since the online encyclopedia is used by millions of people every day. However, Wikipedia is something completely different from a wiki that is used in a corporate intranet.
