SoftServe Online Conference: Digital Innovation in Distributed Remote Teams


Jun 04, 2020




SoftServe is delighted to host a digital conference for C-suite and VP-level executives showcasing insights, digital native toolkits, and practices that enable innovation infrastructure for distributed remote teams, and at scale. Our CTO, Alex Chubay, will be joined by Semafone’s former CIO Ben Rafferty, to showcase that when executed properly, practices like remote discovery workshops are far more scalable, powerful, and exponentially less expensive to execute. These digital native workshops enable collaboration beyond a span of local teams and empower companies to assemble a dream team of global experts—focusing investments on talent, not travel.


The new “digital first” reality brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic reveals the risks for teams associated with prolonged periods of distributed remote work. Businesses need innovation the most at this time, and are desperately looking for new ways to not only keep their pre-COVID pace of innovation, but also accelerate it in their pursuit of competitive advantage in the new emerging business realities.

It goes without saying that innovation in most parts resides in teams located physically. Indeed, in isolation from other factors, physical proximity may not only better facilitate serendipity of creative ideation, but also positively impact post ideation team work overall. On the other hand, team co-location requirements often come with additional constraints on locally available talent pool, and putting talent location as a priority over talent quality and availability.
