- Collaboratively design with remote teams
- Identify limiting social and cultural elements
- Overcome common challenges of remote design
- Use 9 tactics that help remote teams design better
Generations, technologies, cultures, and organizational goals all influence whether team members can work remotely—and to what degree. Some companies are beginning to dabble with this shift. Others, like 37signals (makers of Basecamp), are fully remote. How do they design together—and successfully—from afar?
According to Jeff Gothelf, it all comes down to communication. Using 9 specific tactics and a host of Lean methods, Jeff discovered how to design effectively with teams sitting half a world away. He maintains team cohesion, builds trust with colleagues and clients, and takes advantage of tools that improve long-distance collaboration.
Fortunately, he's willing to share what he's learned.
Collaboratively design with remote teams
- Get a framework for what works and doesn't work for remote design
- Learn methodologies for achieving success in a Lean or Agile environment
Identify limiting social and cultural elements
- Focus on which communication cues help and hurt collaboration
- Find out why your past attempts at remote work didn't go well
Overcome common challenges of remote design
- See why
- Pick tools, cameras, and technologies that facilitate communication
Use 9 tactics that help remote teams design better
- From hiring techniques to process changes, you'll get people talking
- Boost morale using chat, virtual happy hours, and group sketching
Watch this seminar if you:
- Have team members who work in other departments, offices, and time zones
- Want to work with others in a more Agile way but aren't sure how to move faster, especially given philosophical, cultural, or political differences
- Aren't sure which tools actually promote collaboration (or those that just waste time)
Jeff explains what you'll learn in this 90‑second preview…
Jeff Gothelf once spent six months on the road with a circus. Really, if he doesn’t show you the pictures during one of his presentations, ask him about it. You won’t be sorry.
But these days, Jeff is the ringmaster of lean UX, a methodology to reduce risk and minimize waste in product development. Jeff is the author of the excellent book, Lean UX and a Principal at the Neo Innovation Labs' NYC office.
So suffice it to say, Jeff is The Guy behind lean UX, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him here to teach you what he knows.
And part of what he knows came from his experiences as the UX director at TheLadders.com. He also spent time in interaction design and UX roles for Publicis Modem, WebTrends, and AOL.
