On Wednesday, February 8th at 8:30 AM Pacific (11:30am EST) join ThoughtFarmer and special guests from the field of international nonprofit management for a practical and inspiring webinar: Social Intranets & Managing Remote Teams.
Social intranets provide tools for dispersed teams to collaborate online, but without strong people management practices a team can’t get the full benefits.
In this webinar we’ll hear about the practical and honest rules of thumb for managing globally dispersed teams and then we’ll look at real-world examples of how teams can use social intranet features to collaborate effectively.
Presenter: Professor of international business
Presenting on the rules of thumb for effectively managing remote teams will be Dr. Kent Glenzer, Professor in Organizational Behavior and Development at the Monterey Institute for International Studies (MIIS).
Kent has spent several decades working in international development and nonprofit management, has travelled and lived globally and most recently was the Director of Learning, Evaluation and Accountability at Oxfam America, an international nonprofit focused on finding lasting solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice.
You can connect with Kent on LinkedIn.
Co-host: International facilitation expert
This webinar will be co-hosted by Nancy White, a consultant to businesses and international nonprofits and co-author of the book “Digital Habits: Stewarding Technology for Communities.” Nancy brings a critical perspective based on her extensive experience as a facilitator for both online and in-person groups around the world.
