Product Reviews

The pandemic has caused an explosion of innovation in remote work tools.  See our reviews of a some of the most exciting and innovative tools in this rapidly expanding market.

 

Video Conferencing

 

 

Krisp Noise Cancellation Application

People working remotely are finding themselves in a variety of locations where noise can often be an issue.  Noise cancellation applications try to address this.  The leading Video Conference applications have settings that attempt to address this, but we think Krisp as a stand alone app produced by noise cancellation experts does this in the most effective and flexible way.  See our review of Krisp

 

Remeet – Revolutionising Remote Meetings

Remeet is one of the best remote apps we’ve ever seen!  It takes the meeting overload issue that most remote workers experience and absolutely destroys it.  More a new way of working than a piece of software. We’re convinced it’s the future of remote meetings.  See our review of Remeet

 

Training

We believe that if you are going to run remote work successfully then you need to adapt your existing processes for remote work rather than continue to try to use processes designed for office-based work. Most importantly these processes must be documented to allow employees and particularly new employees to understand what is expected. Lean Six Sigma is perfect for this.

While we run our own project management courses, these are not aimed at achieving a professional qualification. If this is important to you then you’ll need to look for PMPPrince 2, Agile and Scrum courses.

For training we really like Grey Campus – see our Review of GreyCampus

 

Knowledge bases

One of the key requirements in setting a company up for remote work is to build a knowledge base.  Most organisations of course already have a knowledge base, it’s Chloe in accounts, Joe in IT, Amit in Marketing and so on.   This just about works in an office environment but has always represented bad practice borne of lazy management and poor control of risk.
