Working from home: Challenges faced by project managers in Southeast Asia

Online Event
Online Event Agenda

The current situation has forced companies to temporarily close their physical offices and have their staff “work from home”. The concept of remote work may not be new, but this could be the first time it has been put to practice by companies in Southeast Asia.

As “work from home” becomes the new normal, how do teams continue to manage tasks and projects with their members working remotely? How do remote managers ensure remote teams are sticking to deadlines to ensure tasks are completed on time? Are there tools available to ensure productivity for both IT and non-IT companies?

Join our panel discussion with project managers from Singapore, Malaysia, and Russia, who will be sharing how the recent changes from “working in the office” to “working from home” have impacted their project management practices and how they adapted them to this “new normal”.

The panel discussion will be followed by a YouTrack tips and tricks session, where you'll see real examples of how JetBrains YouTrack can organize your “work from home” teams. We’ll also show you how YouTrack can be used as a tool that goes far beyond IT practices and could become a part of your daily work life.
