The four mistakes, from the article:
- Using Too Many Online Tools – thats should be obvious, because this cuts down costs, maintenance and friction.
- Instituting Mandatory Meetings – Don’t replace meetings with Zoom calls. Use async ways to communicate instead.
- Not Being Explicit About Expectations – Create agreements about how decisions are made and what it means for a task to be done.
- Depending On Real-Time Conversations – Use async tools like. Email, Slack , RfC, etc. and don’t expect people to answer in minutes.
Working from home doesn’t have to be a copy cat of your office set up. Open yourself up to new possibilities of getting things done, working together and creating culture.
