Drew will offer strategies to help those responsible for distributed team member attendance, contributions, and focus—without the benefit of their physical presence.

Distributed work teams have been a commonplace business practice for a long time. But getting individuals to work effectively together when they communicate almost exclusively through technological channels remains a problem. Carol Drew, consulting director at Robbins-Gioia, LLC, and president of the Pittsburgh Chapter of International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®), will address these challenges in her presentation “Get Interactive! A Case Study in Virtual Requirements Facilitation” at the 4th annual Building Business Capability Conference in Las Vegas, Wednesday, November 13, 2013.

A business analyst with more than 20 years of experience, Drew will offer strategies to help those responsible for distributed team member attendance, contributions, and focus—without the benefit of their physical presence. She supplies best practices to master virtual facilitation strategies and employ mobile meeting techniques, and explains the technology that allows people to collaborate anytime and anywhere. Drew will walk participants through a case study where many of these techniques were successfully used to connect teams across the country. Details about her session are on the conference agenda.

The conference takes place on Monday, November 11 through Friday, November 15. Register online at http://www.buildingbusinesscapability.com/registration.
