Project Management

What makes remote project management different?

If you're already managing a remote team (or are considering it) you know that there are a bunch of positives in doing so. Here are just a few:

  • Lower operating costs (no office means no rent!)

  • Improved work/life balance for your team

  • Ability to attract top talent regardless of geography

Managing projects and teams in different locations aren’t without its challenges, of course. Not only can it be harder to stay on top of tasks and deadlines, it can also be harder to keep your team on the same page. Without the regular meetings, lunches, and break room chats that happen in an office environment, it can be difficult to accurately gauge how a project is going, and what (if anything) your team needs help on.

That’s where project management techniques shine. By taking control of how your team operates and communicates, you're able to keep everyone working as if they were in the same office. Whether you need to talk about deliverables, budgets, or deadlines, communicating with your team is an essential part of keeping your business on track.

The core ingredients for delivering a successful project are the same regardless of where a project is being worked on from. Some factors that can influence the success of a remote project include:

  • Outlining clear processes for each person’s role

  • Ensuring deadlines are agreed upon and set in advance

  • Finding a project management approach that empowers your team to get the job done on time and on budget
