The Three Key Skills of Remote Leadership:

  1. Communicate well in (small chunks of) writing
  2. Manage the flow of information
  3. Enable knowledge to grow over time

The Three Levels of Remote Collaboration

  1. Online Office - we're simulating familiar patterns of interaction using online tools.
  2. NoStandups - high-quality collaboration happens without the need for frequent status and planning meetings.
  3. Network Effects - nurturing a densely interconnected web of useful bricks leads to an explosion of new possibilities.


The tweetstorm that captured some of my early thinking: Don't just simulate the office online. Build towards a truly distributed collaborative knowledge work system.
