In the past, we had to go to a specific geographic place in order to access the information we needed for our work. Now, that information is likely accessible from anywhere. And this gives us the opportunity to play with new ways of working and new business models. We’re at a point in history where work and life are blurring. I want to share some stories with you.

Talk about remote teams doing great things! Here is a prime example of what a passionate group of distributed people can do. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.

Jesse Fewell is a writer, coach, and trainer in innovation and agile methods. He founded the PMI Agile Community of Practice, co-created the PMI ACP Agile certification, and wrote a MiniBük called “Can you hear me now? ...Working with global, distributed, virtual teams”. Agile is about compressing distance. In the past, the best way to do that was by being co-located. But that was then and this is now and companies are struggling to let go of old habits. Technology has advanced, prices have dropped, and it’s starting to make more sense to spend money on bandwidth instead of travel. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.
