However, the principles behind that success apply in exactly the same way for working with smaller teams – partnering a successful micro-business with a Virtual Assistant.
In this blog for the Harvard Business Review, Keith Ferrazzi outlined the main principles behind successful virtual working. If properly applied, Ferrazzi says, virtual teams can even outperform traditional teams.
A key point Ferrazzi makes is that the working relationship needs to be effectively managed. When team members are not working in one another’s presence, the processes and communications they use need to be particularly robust. Once those processes are in place, increased efficiency and effectiveness follow.
