There are a number of areas we may develop team systems around including team including:
Goals and results – Planning systems and tracking systems can abound. How do you help the team keep focused, and measure progress around key goals? How can you share key results and successes accros the team?
Communication – Communication in virtual teams should be ongoing. Think meeting areas (Zoom, WebEx, Skype), Chat (Slack etc), Instant Messaging
Project tools – i.e. status updates, project requirements. Other project tools like Asana, MindMapping, or Basecamp can help with project sharing
Communication systems – While it might seem old school having a team directory, it’s often only when new team members join us do we realize how invisible our networks have become. Who are the people team members will need to reach out to regularly?
Administrative systems – Whether it is key letters or reports which need to be submitted, or financial and budget systems, consider what are the administrative systems which will work best for you.
As you think about systems on your team, what works and what doesn’t? What new systems are needed?
