Remote Control

How Makeshift’s virtual team of 15 does remote collaboration

After hearing that the Makeshift team is completely virtual, most people ask me how we wrangle the gnarly problem of remote collaboration. In a new Medium post, I lay it all out there for you. It’s like a Makeshift WikiLeaks over there.

“The truth is remote collaboration is a reality — and often an advantage — of a globally networked economy, and its consequences are more nuanced than such a hard-line measure would lead one to believe. At Makeshift, we acknowledge four key realities of remote collaboration:

  1. Remote workers are more productive yet less creative
  2. Teams function best together or apart–but not split
  3. Software is the new studio
  4. Meetings are still messy”
