We understand that managing distributed teams is difficult, causing projects to fall behind schedule and soar over budget.  This ebook contains best practices that we have used over and over again to help managers effectively and successfully manage even the most far flung resources.  

If you manage distributed teams, this ebook is a must read. You will learn how to:

  • Synchronize the right work, at the right times, regardless of distance
  • Impose a common deadline on disparate teams
  • Base promises on an enterprise-wide understanding of capacity
  • Make realistic risk assessments

 

A look inside:

  • “For distributed team management, the ugly truth is that traditional tools (such as spreadsheets, groupware, and ad hoc meetings) fail to master the project execution complexities imposed by multiple tasks, resource groups, and locations.”
  • “By being alerted to the significance of their contribution and the delay in their progress, they had reprioritized other less critical work and assigned additional resources to their task, closing a four month output gap in just one and a half months.”
  • “With precise and real-time visibility into every link of the flow meter supply chain, the team was able to detect delays and take corrective actions before a problem at any single link in the chain threatened the entire workflow.”
  • “As a result of the rapid communication of capacity and its utilization, critical actions were taken that boosted the rate of vessel cleaning and reduced the cost of the cleanup activities. The end result was the project was completed in a third of the time and hundreds of millions of dollars under budget.”
  • “Each of the three project managers, working from different locations, were overwhelmed by the pressure to meet wartime demands and insisted they needed additional resources to meet their deadlines.”
