Managing the nuances of engagement and productivity with a couple thousand miles between you and your team is both science and art. My name is Shane. I have been running a fully distributed team of 20-40 North American creatives for the last 5 years. Our success has come from a cohesive set of technical and cultural systems: the right people, the right environment and the right tools.
* Build the right team: happy, helpful, curious & accountable
* The rhythm: offer consistency
* Relationships in the void
* Use the right tools
