COVID-19 has brought unprecedented disruption to just about every aspect of our lives. While some companies are shutting their doors, the rest of us are lucky enough to have projects that are still progressing or new projects arising as we respond to changing needs. While the work we do largely remains the same, the ways in which we do the work have changed. Virus-related constraints are changing the way we can legally, and ethically, work. Physical distancing and visitor limits need to be considered. Our teams are more disturbed while working from home. Business travel is a thing of the past, at least for now. We need to plan and work differently to deal with these challenges. This blog post will help you continue to manage successful projects in a COVID-19 world.
Planning is key for all successful projects and you should consider working from home as a new project for your organisation. It is possible to work seamlessly from home, but you need to put the basics in place for a successful transition. You’ve probably been working with many of the tools you need that’s already with Microsoft Cloud and Office 365. Microsoft Teams is invaluable to keep in contact with everyone in your organisation. If you haven’t already, prioritise plans to roll-out these platforms across your entire organisation.
