How to effectively manage your remote development team?

  1. 1. HOW TO EFFECTIVELY MANAGE YOUR REMOTE DEVELOPMENT TEAM?
  2. 2. Do your homework: 1. Share your vision: You own the company and you understand your product or services in a better way than anyone else. You must have thought about the concept before producing the features. 2. Engage with them: It is very prudent to understand how much time you can spend while collaborating with an offshore development team prior to giving them a task.
  3. 3. Take out some time to train them Don’t let your remote developer feel lonely being remote, encourage them so that they connect with the other employees while taking advantage of various social aspects. Training will make them more comfortable and also confident about their performance. • Teach them new technology • Assign a mentor • Boost morale • Provide guidance • Schedule check-ins • Asses their professional level • Make them understand the work culture
  4. 4. Clear communication 1. Schedule weekly meetings In order to avoid interpersonal gaps, make sure there are frequent meeting for thought sharing. Knowing about loopholes, bottlenecks, accomplishments and staying accountable with one another is important. 2. Provide constant feedback The result of everything depends on how quick you are when it comes to providing feedback. Express your thoughts without using slangs so that no one misunderstands you. A good sense of humor is a great tool to throw a joke once a while during discussions.
  5. 5. Organize the workflow 1. Collaboration tools: Look for a reliable platform that allows you to manage projects, assign tasks, schedule deadlines, share files and track progress. The leading tools are Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Slack, TeamViewer, and Google Hangout. 2. Have a chat room: Besides having regular audio, video calls, it is also important to boost connectivity by having a chatroom that is always open for the whole team. Because everyone is not sharing the same physical office, this deed makes up for the fact. This is the best way not to bump into one another during the day in order to messages privately or within the whole team. It also enables quick discussions and decision making.
  6. 6. Get everybody on the same page 1. Be tolerant and patient If you have given a project or task and are waiting for an estimate, don’t lose your cool. Be patient and don’t throw random insulting questions on them. The dedicated remote staff may be asking you a few queries. Answer them in a relaxed manner and this will make your estimate more accurate and enhance the implementation process. 2. Understand cultural differences Cultural differences and language barriers are the two major barriers that most managers have to face when working with a virtual team. Firstly, you have to be knowledgeable about the cultural ethics, language, holidays of the remote. You have to set an example and then your team will follow.
  7. 7. Tracking is must In the remote world, it becomes difficult to know what is going on, for how many hours they are working because developers are not within your office premises. So, the basic productivity metrics should be tracked: tasks status, daily tasks, working hours and the team’s productivity. If you are paying your remote developers on an hourly basis, it makes sense to track the hours they are clocking in. Time-tracking tools are helpful in the virtual world because it tells you how long a person has worked and on what have they worked.
  8. 8. Reward your team members You are the boss, the team will look up to you for approval. Giving tasks is one thing and praising them for the work done is another. You can always begin meeting with a kick-off note where you start with praising them for the job done so far. This way, they will know if they are moving in the right direction and what all changes are required. Show remote workers that you genuinely feel for them. Those employees will be more than happy if you send t-shirts or other gifts of appreciation. You can also reward them will cash bonuses, movie tickets or restaurant coupons. This small gesture of yours will certainly bring great outcomes.
  9. 9. Conclusion: Follow the work procedure and strive hard for the business objectives but make sure you are taking the whole team along with you. Inspire the team by being genuinely involved, be straightforward by making pre-plans. Provide feedback on the smallest of details. Make it quick today else you will be too late tomorrow. If you follow the aforementioned techniques for your remote development team, management will no longer be a challenge. Instead, you will easily foster accountability, create a strong communication channel while implementing the right tools for your development team.
