Pre-Conference Virtual Workshop
Distributed by Design with Pascal Finette, Lisa Simpson and Kacee Johnson
2020 forced organizations into a work-from-home model without the necessary planning that would optimize collaboration, security and productivity. Distributed by Design takes a step back to provide a framework & toolkit that equips firms with the knowledge and resources to conduct their own strategic planning and decision making on the topic of remote work. The program combines thought leadership, workshop and strategic exercises to help firms identify the implications, challenges and opportunities of distributed work – from how it affects business models, to new day-to-day practicalities and mind-shifts needed in corporate culture.
In this exclusive 2020 Digital CPA pre-con event, explore the benefits and pitfalls of remote work and distributed teams, both from a firm and individual’s perspective to make remote work, work! Unpack the numerous opportunities a remote work setup can deliver your firm, and identify the challenges that come with it. In this highly interactive workshop, you will learn industry-leading best practices ranging from management, performance measurement, culture, operations and client engagement – then apply them directly to your firm.
- Identify the relative importance of tools (less) vs. behaviors (more) in supporting remote teams
- Explore how distribution can open us up to new connections, learning and opportunities
- Enable workforce distribution and digitization as a lever for economic development
