Thanks to the OKR method, we can effectively express the company's strategy, it is clear and understandable for every member of our team. It supports transparency, which translates into greater confidence, and then – better teamwork and greater efficiency. This method allows us to keep track of progress, react quickly to changing market conditions, and immediately adapt to changes.
CEO Mobee Dick
I have been working remotely for over three years, including a year I have been managing projects at Mobee Dick together with our clients. Majority of this time I worked from Vietnam, which is 6 hours ahead of Poland. When most of the teams we work with start their day, it's already early afternoon. At the same time, it is a huge advantage in cooperation with clients who also work in a different time zone.
The most important rule of remote work, which I learned thanks to Remote-how, is intentional excessive communication – over-communication. In practice, this means taking steps to actively fill the gaps that arise when you can't just approach someone and ask a face-to-face question.
Project Manager at Mobee Dick
Effective leaders are essential in every organization. They support building strong teams and ensure the effective implementation of projects. Their goal should be to increase commitment, resolve conflicts, and inspire proactive attitudes. In the case of distributed teams, apart from effective tools facilitating cooperation, soft skills are a key, which we pay special attention to during recruitment.
Head of People Operations
Let's imagine this: someone comes to your desk and asks if you have 2 minutes because in this way you will quickly explain the matter and work will progress. However, you do not react, you remain silent, and the next day you approach this person and say: "Hey, thanks, I took note of your words from yesterday. Let me get back to you next week. " If you work desk-to-desk with someone, you probably won't behave this way.
As part of the cooperation that has been going on for almost 4 months, I work in the team dispersed between several cities in Europe. We communicate only through Slack. UX writer's work often involves discussing a lot of details, because the use of the right words requires verification of the smallest details and in-depth knowledge of the product.
When I ask a question on Slack, it feels like I'm approaching someone's desk. If not for a sensational client’s responsiveness, there would probably be paralysis of communication. Moreover, I never feel like I'm bothering. I think we all realize that this intensive communication saves time. We communicate quickly and directly, without the need for guesses or interpretations. As you can see, the tool is not an obstacle, what counts is openness and willingness to communicate.
