In my previous article, I brushed on the issue of how more work is being done remotely, by people working on their own.
The problem with the field of remote working is that there aren’t many people who do a good job of it, even though there are many software tools designed to help the remote worker. Basically, there is no good mentoring process for how to become a good remote worker for a team, which is why many criticize it, saying that it falls short.
I just came up this article The 7 Hats Of A Successful Team Member which gives a very good overview, and meaningful suggestions about what is needed, and how to become a good contributor for a virtual team.
Hope you find it useful.
