WHO Built This: Building high performing distributed teams.

 

Abstract

We tell the story of how Red Hat Open Innovation Labs and the WHO built a high performing, distributed team whilst creating a Learning Platform during the height of a pandemic. 

 

Originally planned to be in-person face-to-face, the pandemic forced a "Remote First" first approach, utilising Team APIs, visualisation of work, and other practices from the Open Practice Library. 

 

This is a story about how a culture of experimentation equipped the team to tackle any problem without a fear of failure.
