In the last year, workplace interactions and work practices everywhere have been hugely affected. While we have managed to effectively deliver entirely remotely, this has definitely meant more time spent in online meetings. (Which of us has not felt that this meeting could have been an email, as the old saying goes; or something that could be solved in 5 minutes using a whiteboard now takes a 30 minute meeting?)
Working on complex ideas effectively requires getting sufficient uninterrupted time. Studying product analytics, architecture, or implementing a well-crafted service, for example. Be it working remotely or at an office space, we recognise that having dedicated focus days/ times is important, and encourage everyone to mark time aside for this.
