In recent years, ways of working within many organisations have changed dramatically.
More employers are moving from the notion of the 9-5 and allowing more flexible work
arrangements. Hot desking and flexible working hours with staff often working remotely
are becoming more the norm rather than the exception.
Rather than working together in distinct units, work often is carried out by multi-
disciplinary teams working remotely, selected on the grounds of expertise and skills most
suited for the assignment.
This change in work methods has had major implications for the management role. Rather
than relying on on-site availability and instant access, managers and team leaders must
set ground rules, plan for interactions with their staff and focus more on outputs than
attendance. They themselves must become more trusting while fostering team member
self-management and accountability in the process.
The objective of this one-day programme is to assist managers and team leaders in
developing all of the key skills for managing remote teams or teams operating in a
mobile or flexible working environment.
