Process when implementing remote work?

I know we have some remote work consultants here! I'm curious if you have a standard process you go through when setting up company for remote work?

Get to know leadership and operations team, understanding the business needs and pain points, analyze the use case, design and propose a unique solution, implement it, train team members, ongoing coaching and support.

For typical change management services and strategic consulting contracts, we have a four step process: discover, define, deliver, and evaluate.

More information can be found on our change management website, Ready for Remote: https://www.readyforremote.com/consultancy

I always start with a "remote-ready" company audit which is based on four pillars. Evaluation of communication & company culture, processes and procedures, tools as well as legal & IT matters. This allows us to identify areas which need improvement in order to adapt to the remote work model.

Afterwards, relevant changes are being implemented, based on the company's real needs which have been previously evaluated. Then, we proceed with training for managers and employees so that they can adapt to the new environment and thrive.
