We kick things off with a discussion on the challenges being faced by organizations that have been compelled to adopt remote-work during these trying times.
We have an amazing panel with us today. We’ll be introducing them in the upcoming tweets. #STinsights. Visit https://t.co/16ERZxIgDz for more such discussions. #Tweetchat #OneHCL #Agile pic.twitter.com/JkdWxzZCZo— CIO Straight Talk (@CIOStraightTalk) July 2, 2020
Video conference burn out is a real danger. At least with back-to-back meetings in real life you got to walk between room. WIth video confs there is no option.— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
In addition, collaboration tools largely mimic real life rather than reinventing collab.#STinsights #OneHCL #Agile
.@jboogie interesting point: "collaboration tools largely mimic real life rather than reinventing collab." Any examples of real life aspects being mindlessly/ineffectively transferred to collaboration tools? @CIOStraightTalk #STinsights #OneHCL #Agile https://t.co/8GftzeAUqH— CIO Straight Talk (@CIOStraightTalk) July 2, 2020
Agreed. Companies need to understand offline≠online.— Moin Shaikh (@moingshaikh) July 2, 2020
What works in a physical sprint doesn't necessarily work in a virtual sprint. (Talk about a physical whiteboard v/s a shared-screen during a virtual sprint.)#STInsights #OneHCL #Agile pic.twitter.com/xXtAMxveTB
The white board for example. We use a virtual version of it because we use a digital version of it. Does it make sense in a distributed world? Has anyone challenged this model? I know I, for example, have not. It feels obvious but is it?— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
A1: One of the key parts of being #Agile is "...being able to adapt to rapidly changing environment." And the current, uncertain times allow the best opportunity for teams to be adaptive and agile.— Moin Shaikh (@moingshaikh) July 2, 2020
The more adaptive you're, more agile your org. becomes.#STInsights #HCLOne
Visibility! How do we all see the same thing? Leveraging common tools and team norms for engagement becomes the increasing imperative for success.— Karin Thompson Brown (@KarinThompsonB1) July 2, 2020
Q1 Karin is right. This is why #Diversity and #Inclusion is so important in the workplace, virtual or in-person. It helps to understand other points of view which help to lift everyone up. #STInsights #OneHCL cc @KarinThompsonB1— Jen Stirrup #Leadership #WomenInTech #Diversity (@jenstirrup) July 2, 2020
Trust and delegation to people you can't see working are now required, not optional. Anyone who didn't work that out before is struggling extra hard to figure it out quickly.— Bret Mogilefsky (@bmogilefsky) July 2, 2020
In my own experience, trust and delegation was one of the toughest things to learn in my career. Remote working is teaching us all many lessons in a short space of time #STInsights #OneHCL @CIOStraightTalk— Jen Stirrup #Leadership #WomenInTech #Diversity (@jenstirrup) July 2, 2020
I'm not sure what "virtual" agile framework but agility is the key to surviving the distributed reality everyone finds themselves in at the moment.— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
If you were practicing a rigid form of agile (i know, sounds weird) increasing the ability to flex it now is key.
Flexible work hours. Great hardware for every employee (this includes furniture). Top speed internet and the easiest to use sharing/collab tools you can pay for. Anything you can do to reduce friction improves distributed collaboration. #STinsights #tweetchat #Agile #OneHCL— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
Just like in-person teams, distributed teams' agility will be defined by a process they ultimately determine on their own. We can provide guidelines, frameworks and starting points but teams should be allowed to evolve beyond. #STinsights #tweetchat #Agile #OneHCL— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
And finally, we once again ponder on what the future may hold.

And with that we close another fascinating session! Our sincere thanks to the panel!
Teams will reform to meet the constraints of timezones I believe. Where, before, it was tolerable for an occasional off-hours meeting to accommodate far-away colleagues, in the long-term this has to change. #STinsights #tweetchat #Agile #OneHCL— Jeff Gothelf (@jboogie) July 2, 2020
