A team becomes “remote” when one or more members do the majority of their work from a different location than their teammates. Every remote team, however, can write its own rules: Each coworker might live and work in separate cities or countries, a team might operate across several office locations, or just one person might have moved away from their colocated teammates. The sky’s the limit when your team is on board to work across time and space.
In every case, there are team organization techniques that should evolve to create an equal opportunity working environment for everyone: that means no muffled mics in busy conference rooms!
Remote team best practices are emerging to help people work better through technology. Communication, culture, and transparency are key, and a great place to start is with your tools: The processes and Power-Ups below have been tried and tested by remote teams worldwide, including those here at Trello.
