Session: Creating Proximity over a Distance - Collaboration in a Distributed Environment

Wednesday, 13:10 - 14:00
Track: Collaboration

Agility asks for face-to-face communication, trust and collaboration. Proximity can be created by traveling - at least sometimes. Virtual communication channels provide another possibility overcoming the distance. But we should take the trust threshold into account which, once hit, will break an existing relationship.
In this session I'll reveal, avoiding this threshold, how to know if you're
approaching it and explain the options once reaching it. Moreover I'll cover
the advantages and disadvantages of synchronous and asynchronous tools. And
finally I'll clarify who is traveling, where to, and for how long.
