This week Jon is joined by Matthew Lenzi of Hanno - a globally distributed product design agency. Hanno are quite unique in the way that they run their business; a distributed team working around the world using a forward-thinking vision of 'how companies should work in the future'. They’re living the dream sold to us by the level of communication offered by the internet - something that’s quite unique and I’ve not seen anyone else do as successfully before. We talk about how they got started and made this model a success. In this episode they cover: • The history of Hanno; how it formed and how the idea of using a distributed team model came from. • Using regular company retreats to work/be together in person. • Daily communication technique, such as: PPP - plans, progress & problems. • Working around the clock in different timezones. • Using ‘pods’ of team members on projects. • Letting everyone choose where and when they work, and how much they get paid. • Pairing up remotely by planning around people's schedules. • Over communicating. • Introverted and extroverted personalities in distributed teams.
