Being part of a global economy has become extremely important, as well as popular lately.    It’s been exciting at Artic to have clients around the globe as well as our team.  Whether it be watching the sunrise to meet with a client in France, or interacting with our teams around the world, being a global has been rewarding here at Artic.  There are multiple ways to globalize your organization, including physical locations, new client types, and resources.

Advantages of Global Resources

Always on capabilities

Depending on where your clients and resources are, you have the capability to have your organization “always on.”  This means you can be productive 24 hours a day, if needed and have the capacity to support your clients at any time.

Larger talent pool

Greatly expand the talent pool and gain new types of resources when you look globally.  This also gives you more robust and diverse resources to really give your organization an edge against competitors.

Cost savings and efficiencies

Depending on the location, you may also get additional cost savings for resources globally.

If you’re globalizing your talent force, you may want to consider:

Strong Project Management and processes
testimonial about artic consulting

Your organization must have strong management and processes to successfully go globally and expand your business and resources.  This includes documented processes and procedures with tools that can help reinforce them.  We use automation tools to help alert users when they have tasks, or when they are needed in a workflow to more efficiently get things done.

Strong communication and collaboration

Ensure you have a strong communication and collaboration plan for your entire organization, as well as support from your team to ensure the right people have the right information at the right time.  This includes both your team as well as your clients.  Make sure they are up to speed and aware of project timelines, deliverables, and most importantly, when your team will need their time and feedback.

Detailed requirements and documentation

As with all projects, detailed requirements are vital, however they are even more important with a distributed team.  There are many tools available, we use Azure DevOps to track in detail all requirements for our projects, improve security on all assets, and ensure everyone has access to the projects we are collaborating with.  This also helps clients understand the status of the project and any deliverables that are needed from them, so they don’t cause delays or rework.

Being a global organization is highly rewarding and a great way to learn about other cultures and people, and expand your business and mindset.
