Workshop: Collaborating Remotely for New Product Development

Most companies now develop products with teams that span geographies, time-zones, cultures and even enterprises. In this module, we will learn the best techniques for managing the collaboration infrastructure and for designing the collaboration culture for lightning-speed product development.

Some product development leaders have begun to achieve performance similar to collocated teams by using the internet to achieve ‘virtual collocation”. A few have even surpassed that performance, learning to take advantage of the geographic and cultural diversity rather than seeing it as a necessary evil.

TechZecs, LLC offers a one-day training workshop for executives and professionals on how to collaborate. This workshop is in the form of thought provoking exercises and best practice sharing.
