How to manage a scattered team?

Whatever its actual geographic spread, it’s as if every team was at least partially scattered. Increasingly the office is a split space: more and more office workers tend to work in multiple spaces—at home, in coworking spaces of cafés, and at the office. Therefore knowing how to manage a scattered team is more and more critical for all managers.

There are many related issues: inventing new rituals, using the right tools and understanding the pros and cons of each, focusing on leadership and culture, protecting employees’ time and health outside the confines of a single office, understanding the rules of project-based work, and unlocking the potential of cross-cultural teams.

This ebook aims to provide a big picture view of how to manage a scattered team and why it matters, as well as concrete use cases and practical tips to improve team collaboration.
