Is it a real big deal to meet your product management team through Zoom Video Calls instead of conference rooms? Well, not at all. In this era, where striking technical advents have become a regular scenario; relying on traditional business growth approaches defines you as someone old school!
Now, what do you consider as core ingredients for a successful business? Perhaps, a strong innovative idea would be first on the list, and second definitely needs to be the talent that can implement ideas. However, this much needed talent or variety of skilled individuals is not distributed in equal proportions across the topography. So, entrepreneurs living in parts where there is a dearth of particular skills should give up business ideas whatsoever!
All entrepreneurs, precisely talking about Startups, leave no stone unturned to have all of these ends meet seamlessly. And amidst all efforts they take, it is tough to believe that many give up or compromise when it comes to having the best workmen for business! Why? Simply because skilled professionals that they desire for their business are somewhere far away from their geographical location. Lame it is!
There’s no point moaning over these issues. For today you may find engineers from New York that all you need for your business profits to shoot up. And again tomorrow you may find designers from LA to be more efficient.
No it is not that you keep slogging with whatever resources you have. It is simply that you need to sink into the idea that Geographical borders are only physical constraints; the Cloud has no boundaries.
Virtual employees can have multitude of business benefits. And when it comes to digital products and services, this concept of Virtual teams has prospects beyond zenith. To list a few of those:
You have diversified Global team to work with:
Isn’t it incredible? Yes it is. Technical Market is a place where a constant flow of variety, innovation, creativity and out of the box thinking is analogous to oxygen in human lives. You just cannot go without these.
So, if you only concentrate on local availability, one fine day it is destined to get exhausted. On the other hand, when you have the entire global population, you are open to an inexhaustible resource and thus an ever expanding business.
It’s easier than you think:
So, what is it that you need, to have a virtual product development team? Umm a group of technical people who can speak a common language; perhaps English and… and nothing more!
As the rest of the things are just available. At the primary level, you have Skype, Basecamp, Zoom Cloud Meetings, Google Hangouts and so on. So, not meeting your team members face to face can have personal regrets; however, when it comes to business aspects, you have greater reasons to celebrate.
Your meetings always speak work:
Although many would deny this underlying fact that conference meetings are a combination of sense and no sense; it is true. Meetings that extend to social get to gathers; then to parties, pizzas and drinks, not so required outings and sometimes leading to waste of time and money.
However, virtual meetings always work. And then again, you do want to meet your team members working from different corners in the world; you can do it on a personal level without hampering work time and money.
The most obvious:
You being a part of a global product team, contribute in saving a lot of resources; besides the impeccable product delivery you are making for the rest of the world. You save land resources required to set up an office, accommodating huge number of employees. You are making use of technical development giving it a much needed boost. You are reaching talent in the remotest areas driving out mutual benefits. And finally, you are saving unnecessary expenditure.
