Leveraging your virtual teams, both locally and overseas, to coordinate successful projects

In this episode, we are given insight into a real-life project and how leveraging your virtual teams to coordinate these in a time efficient manner.

Some of the areas he covers are:

Why it’s important to have a clear project plan from the get-go?
How important clearly defined roles within the team really are?
Why it’s of benefit to have ‘specialists’ fulfilling particular roles and not expecting your VA to be a ‘jack of all trades’?
Why investing the time in your ‘specialists’ upfront to understand you and your business can really pay off in the end?
Making sure you have a project management system that is the ‘glue’ to ensure everyone communicates effectively
How important is it to have clearly defined project goals and check-in points?
Why it is paramount to lead the project team in order to set them up for success?
