When working with a team of outsource employees. Part 1.
Today it is a common practice to hire an entire team of remote employees to reach certain goals. When working with a team of outsource workers organization is a must, also mutual understanding and strategy clarity.
Whenever the full process lies on all the employees it is utmost importance for the outsource workers to communicate with each other. For if only a single person is responsible for timing and reviewing the tasks, at a certain point, there will be absolute chaos. However, for this mechanism to work all participants need to work together. Thus, when organizing this project, to reach a successful outcome, each member of the team should understand how the strategy is supposed to work, who are the other employees and whose tasks is connected to the one he/she is working on.
Mutual understanding between the team members is a necessity when their tasks are connected. They need to acknowledge what their roles are in that project, who to rely on for certain elements and what is expected of them and in what time period. Strategic clarity of the project reveals the hierarchy and the goal. Therefore, an idea on the time it will require for the outsource workers, what is the budget all must stick to and other common things even if not an outsource team member are crucial for the project’s success.
Hence, as an outsource team leader one must always organize a working schedule, a communication line between the team members and a clear goal and strategy to follow.
