Other than making new friends on cold prospecting calls, stumbling onto a useful idea in front of a white board, while collaborating with colleagues, has to rank at the top of my favorite and best professional memories and ongoing activities.
But, what becomes of that scenario and experience when you work remote? I asked a good friend that question this morning and received a very useful response I want to share here on nextwork.io. He told me about Stormboard::
I’m a visual person who loves brainstorming in front of a whiteboard full of sticky notes. There’s something about that mechanical process that gets ideas flowing and brings clarity to problems that I’m working on (alone or with a team). But that method doesn’t work very well when all or even part of your team is working remote.
