Third Summit co-founder and CEO Matt Cimaglia published a story in Entrepreneur today on the subject of remote work. In the piece, he outlines a few key attributes to look for in a remote workforce, and provides insight into his own workflow running an agile production company.
“In marketing, calling a business “agile” is de rigueur — it’s almost become a hollow buzzword. Not for me. At my company, it’s a credo.
Being agile is what helped my company thrive in the years after the economic crash of 2008, and it’s helped define the attributes I look for in my employees. I define agility chiefly as speed, adaptation and fluid communication.
A remote workforce is fundamental to all three of these.”
