  13. 13. 13 WE STILL PAIR ON EVERYTHING Co-location was our thing, but by sheer accident, we discovered pairing is perfect when remote. Pairing provides accountability and teamwork, while countering the feeling of isolation. Communicative, balanced teams help ease workload and provide a common support structure. Ultimately, our tools may have changed, but our methodology remained and was reinforced. Copyright © 2020 Accenture. All rights reserved.
  14. 14. 14 WHAT DID CHANGE? Our changes came in the tactics and tools not in our strategy or values. Stand-Down The biggest addition was a new end-of-day meeting that replicates the pace of the daily stand-ups. This gives the team a chance to reconnect, assess task problems, and most importantly: give each other the grace to end the day together. No late nights means no burnout. Personal Structure While we always hoped our team members took the appropriate amount of self-care when in the office — it’s even more important when remote. We encourage repeated breaks and that employees practice typical dress and hygiene habits to help improve their mood and ability to work. Remote Software Our modern workforce was already outfitted with laptops as their primary machines, but we implemented a few tools to a higher degree, such as Microsoft Teams, JIRA, and Miro to help virtualize certain tasks such as meetings, project tracking, and whiteboarding.
