There is no industry that the pace of the evolution of business is more astounding than in the tech arena. The demand for developers is high and has been projected to grow 17% over the period 2014-2024 which translates to greater competition for the best developers.
Another growing trend is the rise of distributed teams with a massive 60% of the workforce estimated to be remote by 2024.
The data reflects that distributed teams are highly motivated and produce better quality results faster. As a result, startups and traditional businesses have been embracing distributed teams as a competitive edge.
Distributed teams provide this edge by being able to get products to market faster utilizing the latest technology all while requiring less oversight and impacting the overall organization in a positive manner. Companies that integrate distributed teams become more communicative, empowered, efficient, diverse and creative.
Progressive companies are now either considering or are already integrating distributed teams into their business models. This trend is disrupting the status quo and creating waves across industries as businesses attempt to raise the bar to be either ahead of the competition or at the bare minimum, keep up with it.
