New Exponential Organisations podcast episode - "John O'Duinn - Author of "Distributed Teams: The Art and Practice of Working Together While Physically Apart".
Before the Coronavirus there was a move to working from home or having distributed teams. Companies though still felt a need to have large corporate head offices and to see people in the office working. The Coronavirus has changed this and has forced almost all work to be remote as we do social distancing.
The questions is will remote working become the new way that we work and learn?
I talk to John O'Duinn about his book and advise on how to manage distributed teams.
About John O'Duinn
John loves growing a culture where diverse groups of humans work well together in a distributed global workforce. He has worked in distributed teams for 27 years, led distributed teams for 14 years and coached/mentored fast-growing distributed companies for 6 years. So far, he has lived and worked in 13 cities across four continents.
As this way of working has become more mainstream, and even more now during the Coronovirus, he noticed a lack of practical material in this area, so in 2018, he published his book "Distributed Teams: The Art and Practice of Working Together While Physically Apart". This practical easy-to-read management book deals with immediate tactical issues, more complex human dynamics as well as wider social, diversity and environmental aspects. In 2018, he also helped write the State of Vermont's "Remote Worker" law - a very different approach to Economic Development which has been so wildly successful that I'm now helping draft bills and write policies for multiple other jurisdictions world-wide.
