Some areas that will be touched on:

    • People - how to organize distributed teams, cultural factors to consider, ways to build trust, and how to avoid timezone burnout.
    • Process - how to communicate effectively, plan collaboratively, setup distributed practices (standups, retros, pairing, etc), effectively divide work on a common codebase, maintain visibility, and track progress.
    • Tools - (tips provided as a handout) which hardware and software tools should you absolutely invest in to help overcome communication,  visibility and collaboration challenges

    This workshop has two goals - one is to show that there are other intelligences than IQ which is by far the most well known type of intelligence. The second goal is to create understanding for the CQ model and its application in distributed cross-cultural teams.

    Many distributed cross-cultural teams work together without being aware how much their cultural backgrounds influence the work they do. Often times cultural differences is looked upon as a problem that create misunderstandings, which is also the case sometimes. In the CQ model we also look at cultural differences as an asset that can also create more creativity and that can be the building blocks for high performing teams. If you want this to happen you have to work with your team to get it to the level of high performance. Here, using CQ can help you.

    This workshop consists of a presentation of CQ and its four elements (Drive, Knowledge, Strategy, Action). Moreover, this workshop will look at how CQ and High Performing Teams are correlated, and finally we will try to apply CQ to our own teams and see how it can be used there.

     

    CQ is a reserach based model, that consists of the four CQ elements and an online 360 test that can be used for developing teams, for recruitment, for individual development, coaching etc.
