Remote teams and remote workers have always been a feature of organisational life but the growth in electronic communications and national and international trade have increased this form of team working.


Where employees are not within the day-to-day observation of their manager and are beyond easy access different working arrangements and people issues arise. Managing in this situation requires a different and more innovative approach than more conventional working arrangements.


This course aims to explore the issues involved and provide managers with insight and understanding so that they can more effectively manage their own remote teams.

Participants will be encouraged to produce action plans for implementation on their return to work.
