There are four things you can do right now to make it in the global workforce, and to up your ante in global production networks. Specialist or generalist, we'll present the strategies and tactics used by "best practice" global teams to coordinate and collaborate productively. How do you communicate about "high-touch" things, emotion and effect so that people in 14 countries can create? Who's responsible for making meaning? Does culture matter? Is it all about the specification? What percent of your time has to be face-to-face? Welcome, natural public problem solvers and social innovators . . . No one profession, country, software vendor, or region has the lock on how to create in a distributed environment. We'll present data and findings from the gaming industry, a global Fortune 5 online development team and an award winning commercial music production company. You provide context, exceptions, share nuance. Learn to differentiate yourself and maintain work life balance at this hallway conversation in the round.
