Over the last few months I have seen a couple of remote working guides appear in my inbox sharing tips and best practice from across the industry to get the best out of remote work. While I found a lot of these articles interesting and useful I could not help but notice that a lot of it is aimed at being content marketing and thus lack some practical advice for the day to day actions that can make or break remote working.
After many years working as a consultant and freelancer, having been a remote worker and having managed remote teams, I thought I would put down my own experiences and advice in the hope that it could benefit others. The idea is to provide practical advice not only for remote workers but also for office workers who interact with remote team members or clients.
Remote working has so many different aspects to it that trying to cover it in a single post would simply not work. I have thus decided to split this into a three-part series that will cover the following topics:
- Part 1 – Hardware and Environment
- Part 2 – Software
- Part 3 – Business Processes and Culture
I will update the above list to link to the articles as I publish them. Feel free to get in touch with me on social media or keybase with any of your own experiences and feedback.
