A playbook about how we work together as a distributed team.
Truss has been fully distributed since sometime in late 2018. We’ve learned some things. The following practices hold for up to the 75 people we are; many might be heavy handed for a group of 20 or fewer. When a practice is associated with a specific headcount, that headcount has been included.
- Facilitate interactions - Interacting in a distributed fashion benefits from a bit more intentionality around facilitating.
- Resource people correctly
- Bond with each other - How can we build understandings of each other as humans when we don’t bump into each other in the hallway or by the much lauded, proverbial water cooler?
- See each other in person sometimes - Face to face connection still has a certain something to it, and so we recommend still seeing other coworkers in person from time to time.
