Technology can serve as an enabler or derailer for team practices. Some of the current technologies which are being used are:
Slack: Used by many virtual teams, Slack is an important channel for project updates, photos, filesharing, and other projects.
Zoom: As most of the world discovered in 2020, Zoom is the platform for many activities including team meetings, quarantinis, and also team development sessions. Zoom creates quick work with recording and transcription of meetings (with the integrated Otter.ai app), as well as breakouts for smaller group discussion.
Microsoft Teams: The meeting place for many organizations, continuing to adapt to create as many similar types of experiences as Zoom.
Asana: Popular in the entrepreneurial sector for managing projects and related communication.
These point to the need for relationships and skills, the focus of systems, which will be explored in Chapter 7, Making It Scalable—Systems, Platforms, and Tools.
Consider what types of team practices you currently have, and aspire to create to support both building relationships and results.
