remote:af Foundation

$720 + GST

The remote:af Foundation course teaches people modern approaches to working effectively in a remote environment. Remote working is a milestone to a more sustainable future for you, your organisation and for the planet.

The remote agility framework (R:AF) was developed to help individuals and teams evolve highly effective working practices and navigate a future where remote working is the new normal.

People attending will learn the key practices involved in establishing and working in remote teams: how to establish working agreements that cater for individuals and working in different workspaces, how to use digital tools effectively to plan for and facilitate different types of events, tips and techniques to aid and assist working in a remote environment, and how to establish a culture of delivering value while using data-driven improvement to continuously improve.

If you're looking for lecture-based training then this is not the course for you!

This is an immersive, hands-on course delivered by trainers who have years of experience across business, operations and IT. Participants apply theory to activities throughout the course with a constant focus on the customer, collaboration, delivering value, learning and continuous improvement. 

We appreciate that adopting remote working can involve unlearning for individuals. We show great empathy throughout the course taking a very pragmatic, non-prescriptive approach to adoption where teams can shape what their way of working looks like to them and implement immediate change post the course.

Structure of course:

The course has been designed with remote:af practices and principles front of mind, to maximise the value of remote events and training by communicating and collaborating asynchronously and synchronously using best of breed tooling and emerging remote working practices.

We will be using the screen time as effectively as possible to get the benefits out of key discussions and collaboration between people attending the course so that people can share their experiences and anecdotes.

Therefore the course has been designed in a modular format where the content for the majority of the course will be delivered by video and the discussions and team activities or playbacks will be done face to face.
