7 things I learned to build highly effective onsite/offshore teams

If you are a supervisor or a team leader, you know how difficult it is to manage distributed teams with constant pressure to perform and deliver quality product/service on time. This is especially true for offshore teams who are in different timezones, regions, cultures and working styles. If you do not put in effort to come up with effective strategies to manage these teams, it may eventually lead to low team morale, disgruntled employees, and most importantly poor performance. This is the reason why companies are investing millions of dollars in training, organizational and team development.

In this talk I will share key strategies to improve team's performance in delivering high value product/services to customers irrespective of their cultural and geographical differences.
