So to summarize, here are my key points from this talk, in a nutshell — please make these your key takeaways.
- Distributed teams are better than localized teams — not because they’re distributed, but because they’re asynchronous.
- Avoid anything that makes a distributed team run synchronously.
- Use less chat.
- Have fewer meetings.
- Write. Things. Down.
This post is such a good summary on how and why one should embrace and extend working asynchronously.
