Have you ever stopped to think how to build a high-performing remote team? I know, I know. You have Jira and Confluence and Bitbucket and Stride. You have remote team members, and they can all chime in. You have the tools. But do you have the culture and the processes and the deliberate tactics to "include" remote works and create an environment in which your entire team can thrive? Think about it. Because tools are not enough.
In the book, Consumption Economics: The New Rules Rules of Tech, the authors share some horrifying stats. First...that the effective usage rate of enterprise software is 50%. Yikes. Second...that only 15% of enterprise software projects are rated successful by IT execs. Double yikes! Can you relate? Dave Shanley, VP of Analytics at Jama Software, came by the studio at the Nice Work podcast to talk to Lacey about this. Dave told us one of the reasons for these failed software projects is that no one is communicating the why. "It's amazing to the see the gap where people are building products, but they are not enabling the team to fundamentally understand the why."
