The world is facing unprecedented challenges due to the escalating global uncertainty brought about by COVID-19. It is a highly complex, uncertain and fast-moving situation and increasingly dramatic measures are being adopted by countries around the world to try to minimize the crisis.
INSEAD is launching a new webinar series: “Navigating the Turbulence of COVID-19” to provide our community with deeper understanding of the key issues surrounding pandemic control and current countermeasures being taken around the world.
The webinars will be broadcast twice a week and will feature up-to-date analysis and insight from our faculty on the human cost of this pandemic, the growing global impact on the economy and the business implications of COVID-19. The webinars are free of charge for our alumni, students, faculty and staff.
Times are set for EDT.
This webinar features Phanish Puranam, INSEAD Professor of Strategy, on “Designing Remote Collaboration”.
Working remotely has gone from being a perk or fad to an absolute necessity in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. What can we do to design remote work in a manner that makes it both effective and efficient, but also caters to our innate human need to connect? I discuss results from my research on remote collaboration in offshoring, open-source software development, and recent adjustments employees around the world have made to remote working since January 2020.
