Whether you work in a large company or small agency, collaborating with remote colleagues is a fact of life. The first casualty of a distributed team is communication. It’s also the most crucial. In this tactic-filled talk, Jeff will walk you through a series of practices that make working with remote teams as effective as sitting in the same cube farm. You’ll learn proven methods of maintaining team cohesion and conversation, building trust with colleagues in different time zones, and using the myriad tools available to improve long-distance collaboration, which has been a long interest of mine (I even wrote a thesis on it).

Jeff Gothelf is a product designer based in New York City. He has been at the forefront of the Agile and Lean UX movement for the past few years, advocating for broader cross-functional collaboration and productivity. His book on Lean UX was published on March 2013. Jeff is an internationally sought-after speaker, having given talks on various topics at SXSW, Euro IA, UX LX, UX London, Agile conference and many others. Despite its eco-friendliness, Jeff doesn’t believe in double-sided printing.
