Remote project management
Establish standard working hours
Sticking to an agreed-upon work day can help keep your employees motivated and connected while they work remotely. Having a routine is healthy, and ensures your team members stay accessible to one another by being online at the same time each day.
Identify accountability mechanisms
Schedule weekly one-on-one meetings with individual team members and use an online project management tool to identify key priorities and track project progress. It's also helpful to build in time dedicated time each week for your whole team to connect and share their priorities, challenges and successes.
Communicate remote work policies
An article in TechRepublic recommends that remote leaders establish and communicate policies on security, logistics and workflows, and methods for interaction.
Update and share policies as needed
Changing times demand changing policies. The trick is communicating them as you adapt. This LinkedIn article recommends remote leaders develop a shared online “handbook” of important policies, updates and key leadership decisions. That way, employees can access the most up-to-date information anywhere, anytime.
