The essence of a successful organization is about people working together: collaborating, coordinating, innovating and making choices. Maintaining a solid team and an active communication among its members is critically important, although it is exceedingly difficult when employees are spread out between different work locations. However, there are several ways to successfully solve these issues thanks to the available technological tools and digital platforms. Yet, they can influence the speed and the results of the work.
