Remote Teamwork Tools推荐的远程工作过渡建议

原作者:Grant Shonkwiler 译者:Willow Wu

游戏行业进入了一个前所未有的时代,所有的团队都必须远程工作。过去三年,我与团队一直都保持远程协作,我知道一开始你会遇到很多看似不可能克服的问题,但我向你保证,它们是可以解决的。在《远程团队合作工具》(Remote Teamwork Tools)一书中,我们概述了100多个优化远程办公的做法。在下文,我会列出一些我个人认为最有效的做法,帮助那些刚开始远程工作的团队克服挑战。

首次远程工作的注意事项

转为远程工作后,有些重要的事你得了解。

安排好日常工作计划后,你可能会开始遇到无法集中精神这样的问题,以下这些做法能够帮助你保持专注(感谢Jessica Damerst的专业帮助)。

做法:
-允许间歇性工作,一开始是很容易分心的,尝试着工作45分钟,休息15分钟
-每小时起来走动走动
-保留之前的常规会议
-每天要安排跟团队面对面交流
-好好享受安静、不被打断的工作时光
-抑郁和焦虑会增加远程工作的难度,要注意这点
-在日程表上标出你的工作时间,并遵循
-切勿因为分心而责备自己,给分心时间设一个限制,比如10分钟左右,然后继续回到工作中
-进入状态,要确保家人都知道你正忙于工作,避免被打扰
-布置合你心意的工作环境。如果你的工作场所是一个可以把门关上的办公室,那是再好不过了
-让阳光可以照射进来的,这很重要。如果有条件的话,健身器材也可以备一些。一天至少要活动30分钟,或者每小时活动5分钟
-跟以往在办公室相比,你现在要多做沟通交流

日常例程规划

当你第一次接触远程办公时,规划每天的工作内容是极为重要的。

刚开始远程工作,大家都要面临的第一个挑战就是起床穿裤子。说真的,一开始真的不知道该怎么合理安排每天的例程。我刚开始的时候,一天之中玩《上古卷轴5:天际》的时间比工作还多。记住,不管你在哪里,这时候还是工作日,你还是得准备工作。

做法:
制定每日例程能够帮助你进入工作状态。

-起床
-锻炼
-洗澡
-做好准备
-冥想时间
-吃早餐
-工作时间
-吃午餐
-工作时间
-工作小结
-自由时间

领导一个全新的远程协作团队

当你的团队转为远程办公模式,作为领导者/管理者的你也需要做出调整。

团队领导、人员管理是办公模式改变所面临的最大挑战之一。这些做法/建议将会指引你渡过难关。

做法:
-保留常规会议日程,转移到线上进行
-用软件来替代日常讲解用的白板
-每个开发团队都有一个群
-每个部门都有一个群
-充分利用工具来简化审查(代码、艺术、产品)
-鼓励屏幕共享
-给人们充分的专注时间,不被打扰。可以设定“无会议日”或者是“静默一小时”
-确保那些之前从没远程工作过的员工知道如何做才是最有效的,给予他们支持

首次远程工作的建议

-每天都要查看员工的状态,可以通过早晨打招呼来确认
-在工作日中,要确保有一些面对面交流的时间
-要确保团队中的每个人至少有一个小时的是协同工作的
-对所有事情都要充分、反复沟通,确保所有人都了解清楚了

做法:
-设定无会议日
-设定静默时间
-提供首次远程工作的建议

远程办公背景下的公司文化

要确保你们的公司文化没有在转为远程办公后消失。

建立稳固的公司文化是需要费很多功夫的,但在过渡期间,你还需要付出更多努力。如果你是从零开始构建远程工作团队,你可以参考《远程团队合作工具》这本书来塑造坚实的公司文化。书中也涵盖了如何在过渡阶段维护好公司的文化。

做法:
-将管理团队召集在一起
-写下公司文化的核心理念
-在每个理念下,说明它在团队日常工作中是如何体现的,这将是从多方面体现
-写完之后,根据所涉及的内容进行分组(沟通、社交、工作等等)
-把每一点都过一遍,讨论一下在远程环境中要怎么实现
-将这些内容整理成一份文件,发给团队
-跟大家面对面讨论

建议:
-一定要询问团队成员,他们认为这些理念是如何体现的
-把团队都转为线上群组
-每个月都要留出社交时间,大家可以一起玩游戏或者一起视频通话闲聊

We as an industry have been thrust into an unprecedented time, one where all of our teams have moved to remote work. Having worked with teams remotely for the last three years I know that there are a host of challenges that can appear nearly impossible at first, but I promise you they aren’t. In our book Remote Teamwork Tools we outline over 100 practices that can be used with remote teams to improve their work. Below I’ve included a few of those practices that I think will be most helpful to new teams as they navigate this new challenge.

First Time Remote Working Tips

The top things you need to know when moving to remote work as an individual.

After you get your routine working, you might start to run into some problems with focus; this practice will provide you with information to keep focused and working. Note: Thank you to Jessica Damerst for contributing her expertise.

The Practice
-Allow yourself to work in bursts; it’s easy to get distracted at first. Try 45min of work and 15 min of break.
-Move around once an hour
-Keep any regular meetings you might have had before
-Get some face to face time daily with your team.
-Enjoy the silent uninterrupted times.
-Depression & Anxiety make remote work much tougher. So be mindful of that
-Block out work times in your calendar and keep track of the hours you plan to work
-Never chastise yourself for getting distracted. Put a time limit on the distraction (10 more min) then jump back in.
-Get in the zone and make sure the whole family knows you are not available.
-Build an environment you want to work in. If you can have an office with a door that closes, this is best.
-Prioritize sunshine and, if possible, fitness. Get moving for at least 30 min in a day or 5 min each hour.
-You have to over-communicate compared to when you are in an office together.

Establish a Routine

When you first transition to remote work it’s important to have a routine.

The first challenge everyone faces when beginning to work remotely is that of putting on pants in the morning. Seriously it can be hard at first to learn how to set up a routine and schedule for yourself. When I first started working remotely, I spent more time playing Skyrim than working. Remember, you are still getting ready to go to work.

The Practice
Set up a daily routine that gets you ready to work.

-Wakeup
-Workout
-Shower
-Get ready
-Quiet time/meditate
-Breakfast
-Work time
-Lunch
-Work time
-Wrap up work
-Free time

Leading a New Remote Team

When your team moves to remote you as a leader/manager will also have to adjust.

One of the biggest challenges teams face when transitioning to remote work is people leadership/management. These practices/tips will help you begin to navigate this difficult topic.

The Practice
-Keep your regular meetings, and replace them with digital meetings
-Replicate any physical boards with digital boards
-Have channels for each strike/scrum team to communicate
-Have channels for each discipline to communicate
-Utilize any tools you can to streamline reviews (code, art, product)
-Encourage lots of screen sharing
-Give people large chunks of time to work uninterrupted, use No Meetings Day and Silent Hour
-Make sure that your workers who haven’t worked remotely before understand how best to do it and are supported.
-First Time Remote Working Tips
-Do a daily check-in with each person; it can be as simple as a good morning message
-Make sure you get some face to face time with each person during the week.
-Make sure everyone on the team has at least one hour of overlapping time.
-Over Communicate everything, and make sure it was heard.

Remote Company Culture

Make sure your company culture survives the shift to remote

It takes a lot of work to set up a solid company culture, but it’s even more work to maintain the transition to remote. When building a new remote team from scratch, you can use a lot of the practices in this book to start to build a solid culture. This practice will cover maintaining your existing culture in the transition to remote working.

The Practice
-Gather your leadership team together
-Write down the core tenets of your culture
-Under each tenet, write down how it is manifested in the daily work of your team, this will -be multiple points
-Once you have all of those put them into groups of what they are (communication, socializing, work, etc.)
-Go through each group point by point and discuss how you will migrate each to a digital/remote tool
-Compile your findings into a founding document and send it out to the team.
Meet with the team to discuss

Tips
-Make sure to ask members of the team how they think each tenet is manifested
-Migrate any teams or social groups to a digital version
-Set aside social hours every month, people can play games or enjoy a happy hour on a video call together
