PM Insight Sunnyvale Virtual Meeting - Building Hybrid Teams - How to be Effective with both Remote and Co-located Employees
Many leaders are eagerly awaiting the “return to the office” but most organizations are trending towards hybrid co-located and distributed teams - and underestimating the challenges they are about to face. Despite now having experience with full co-location and fully remote operations, blending remote and in-person interactions is more complex than “averaging” the two extremes. Ensuring that your People and Processes will thrive in a hybrid state requires targeted planning.
Fortunately, companies with satellite offices have been building best practices on hybrid operations for years pre-pandemic. There is plenty of opportunity for smaller teams and companies to stand on the shoulders of giants as they plan for, or dive into, this new way of working. Starting with concepts like “structured informality”, this is a talk about the potential contradictions of hybrid operations and how to leverage them to your best advantage.
PM Insights Foster City -
Carrots, Sticks, and Magic
Catalyst, visionary, lubricant - these are the hats we wear as PMs. They are also how we define great leaders. Software teams, executives, marketing, and sales teams all look to the PM as the core instigator of change, driver of productivity, and persuader for possibility. Your customers rely on you to bring amazing products to market that solve hard problems and entertain like magic.
Good Project Managers recognize all the knobs and levers they control and can see to leverage the controls to drive the success of their products - but it takes learning and mastering a diverse set of skills (including self awareness). These skills aren’t standard in any curriculum. Leadership requires that we take ownership of outcomes, motivate teams, remove or lubricate frictions, and understand the psychology of all our stakeholders.
That sounds like a lot of responsibility - how do we succeed? Join us for the answers.
