The Home Office also has areas of opportunity. Have you ever wondered how do you make sure that what you require has been understood? How do I measure and monitor my team’s online work? What control points should be established at work? remote?
Although there are various tools for managing tasks, all of this must be aligned with your work methodology. Some will think, “this takes my time”, others will tell you “these tools really speed up my work”. Business processes have activities that are vital for remote work, so we must coordinate and define times for everything to work effectively and efficiently.
Communication and follow-up is decisive during the Home Office, we must be professionals, we cannot handle everything via whatsapp. Chat communication is inefficient, everyone interprets it in their own way or at their convenience.
How to implement home-office and manage it with quality?
It sounds very simple to say: ‘I’m going to do a home office’ or ‘do a home office’… what is reality like operationally speaking?
Generate and disseminate acceptance criteria
Use tools for Project Management, so you will keep your team up to date on the progress of the project in real time, who is responsible, etc. This way you will avoid having to contact each member of your team. Communicate the requirements!
Define requirements delivery deadline
Each person understands in their own way, so you must establish delivery deadlines.
Improve communication with your team
We must create an independent channel and follow threads in our conversations. Train your team and clear doubts!
Check the progress of the projects
Carry out reviews of the progress of the projects, do not assume that what you requested went well the first time, review the progress of the projects.
Update project progress
It is important to have the progress status of the projects updated and make it accessible to all team members, for this there is a range of digital tools that you can rely on.
Rely on various tools to record the progress and inconveniences of projects.
Provide feedback to your collaborators
Meet with your team at least once a fortnight to encourage coexistence.
Collaborators require their work to be monitored and feedback provided to know if they are on the right track.
It is not enough to deliver or receive requirements, we must evaluate the quality of work and measure results.
When collaborators know in which areas they need to improve, they focus on doing their job better.
