Exceeding expectations through developing a high performing collaborative virtual team.
In these unprecedented times we are all having to adapt the way we live and the way we work. But the world hasn’t just stopped turning; projects still need to make tangible progress; work packages still need to be delivered and KPIs (albeit adjusted) remain to run the rule as ever.
More than ever, effective communication is crucial with team members operating remotely from each other, each with their own working environment and frequently disjointed (and disrupted) working hours.
The challenges are obvious and now all too familiar for many of us but add into the scenario working with individuals from different organisations, each with their own culture and methods of operation and delivery.
Project collaboration can be an unwieldy beast with conflicting agendas, styles and personalities, but if a team can be united by and committed to a common purpose then the output can exceed the sum of the component parts.
This case study shows how Acorn supported a new collaboration team spread across nine sites countrywide tasked with delivering improved procurement for the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
