Digital Innovation in Distributed Remote Teams

Panel Discussion,Presentation

This web conference showcased insights and an understanding how companies can fully leverage and implement innovation using remote delivery.

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.

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.
