Workshops are interactive meetings focused on a specific topic where all team members are expected to participate and contribute to the expected outcome.


What Is a Remote Workshop?

Workshops are usually longer meetings of 1-3 hours where a certain topic is defined and all the participants get to really focus on that topic for the duration of the workshop. Some of the workshops have the objective to more clearly understand a problem, brainstorm ideas or ensure that everyone spends enough mental energy going deep on a certain topic. 

A workshop may help team leaders accelerate a project, get buy-in from all the relevant stakeholders to a certain project, promote a new team practice, and teach hands-on skills.

No two workshop is the same but what is critical for it to be successful is clear definition of the objective and planning.

Here’s how they usually work (pun intended):

  1. Define the topic - determine a clear focus for the workshop at hand. 
  2. Define the agenda - set out the points to be worked on during the meeting.
  3. Define the execution - decide if it should be a presentation, interactive or a mix.
  4. Create a plan - Put the plan for the workshop together and share with the attendees.
  5. Define the platform - decide where and when it’ll take place, such as in a virtual office.

Why Is a Remote Workshop Important for Your Team?

Whether you’re a team of designers, a startup, a product team or software engineers, a remote workshop can help address a topic in the most efficient and complete, involving deeply all the relevant members. 

Remote workshops have been shown to increase team performance and reduce planned activities by 20% compared to in-person meetings for teams.

Apart from solving a problem or getting a team's alignment on a certain topic, they can establish connections with like-minded people and build new relationships.

Workshops offer many benefits for your team, such as:

  • Focus - Workshops push everyone to spend a certain amount of time on the project.
  • Interactivity - It allows the team to provide their input to create a better output.
  • Connection - it brings together different teams that otherwise won’t interact much.
