TelePresence Workshops Are Effective

Some friends and colleagues ask me how we make the agile design and development of Career OnDemand work across three countries.  Among many things, we use telepresence technology to conduct workshops. With telepresence, it is possible to share screens, use physical whiteboards and have more engaging. meaningful conversations. It is not exactly cheap. But it is better than flying teams around all the time. It is essential to do good prep work for telepresence workshops. Telepresence is effective for synthesis workshops, where there is already enough content to review, discuss and elaborate on.  Telepresence may not work for open ended brain storming workshops.

I drew this line diagram to share how an SAP telepresence room looks like.
