You can follow these guidelines to ensure a successful relationship with Allshore:
We encourage frequent team communication, including regularly scheduled meetings directly with your team members. Our experience has proven that effective and consistent communication is instrumental to success. When working with a remote team, it's crucial to establish an understanding of the project goals and ensure everyone is on the same page.
When assigning tasks, be clear about your goals, deadlines, and make sure they know what is required of them. The best way to ensure this happens is regularly schedule meetings; we recommend at least one per week. On call you will be able to discuss expectations, encourage your team to ask questions, and provide a voice (and potentially a face) to the project that they are working on. This kind of consistent communication also helps maintain transparency, builds trust, and helps to provide long-term motivation.
Even with consistent communication, you need to set some ground rules to ensure that everyone on your team remains accountable, is meeting expectations, and following the same work style. We recommend that all of our clients utilize some form of project management to help make sure their team members are aware of their tasks and deadlines and that there are no misunderstandings. Establishing a system that makes it easy for you to manage your team and for your developers to follow is crucial.
Be Clear and Concise with Your Expectations
Whether you are working with an in-house or remote team, we always encourage you and your team to be transparent and communicative about your expectations, goals, and deadlines. That being said, do not overlook the fact that as much as you need your team to meet your expectations; your team also needs you to meet theirs. The best way to ensure you and your team's expectations are met is to make sure you're consistently communicating 'big picture' goals so that your team knows what they are working towards.
Relying on Your Team
We understand it will take time to build a relationship with your team, but know that dedicated communication, efficient project management, and clear expectations are the building blocks that will get you there. In addition to these tools, we encourage you to rely on your team on a daily basis. Don't be afraid to ask your development team questions or to brainstorm ideas with each other. Don't be afraid to provide constructive feedback or to show appreciation for their successes. These are the smaller blocks that are going to build long-lasting trust and dedication with each of your team members.
These 4 tips are a great way to get you started off successfully with Allshore! We know that maintaining consistent communication, utilizing a project management tool, clearly defining expectations, and relying on your team are the building blocks of success and will ensure long-term stability and growth for you and your business.
