After a year of lockdowns, Covid-19 policies, and many people working from home, organizations call workers back to the office. But not everyone, and not all the time. In hybrid workplaces, most team members are at the office for a limited number of days and hours of the week. Some work only from home. Some only at the office. And many spend their working time at clients, coworking spaces, or coffee bars.
But how should organizations manage that? When should everyone be at the office? How often should team members meet in person? What are the consequences for security, diversity, and performance? Can we still have dedicated agile teams in a world of networked individuals? And how do we optimize creativity and productivity with team members spread across the country?
In this workshop, we are pioneers looking for answers to our questions about hybrid workplaces.
Our self-paced workshops consist of different activities. We expect you to read articles, watch videos, listen to podcasts, and more. This is all followed by a series of online workshop meetups, which include various discussions and exercises. These meetups are repeated multiple times across different time zones so that all attendees have a choice of different options. When you miss a meetup, you can still attend one of the others or choose to watch the video later.
Our workshops are available for everyone, but registered Explorer members have priority access to the meetups, and they are the ones who will get a diploma after completion of the workshop.
