Practice and business improvement

Whatever organisation you work in, you are bound to collaborate with colleagues who work at home, across the globe or at different locations and times. In the twenty-first century "teleworking" is no longer a perk, but a business imperative. Yet many professionals are unprepared for the challenges – and rewards – of international, flexible and remote working, and unaware of the processes and tools that can maximise the motivation and productivity of virtual and mobile teams.

By working through this course you will discover the challenges and rewards of working at a distance and explore some practical tools and techniques to improve your own and your colleagues' performance. You will consider how to adapt your own working style to new work patterns and learn how to communicate effectively across cultures. Finally, you will explore how to exploit the positive impact of international, flexible and remote working within your organisation.

International and Remote Working is part of Nelson Croom's Issues and Debates suite of learning. Issues and Debates courses stimulate intelligent dialogue and debate and provide a valuable and evolving resource of professional knowledge and experience. These courses are topical, practical and highly relevant to today's changing market. Each module is split into two activities: Understanding the issues and Putting it into practice. The first encourages learners to think about a topic, drawing on their own professional experience and knowledge. The second helps them put ideas and/or theories into practice as part of their day-to-day work.
