How to effectively transfer knowledge in a remote company

Learn how to use effective communication in your remote team as a competitive advantage.

Uri Bram, being a remote worker most of his life (and now a CEO of a fully remote company), is well versed in effective forms of communication in a distributed team. The Browser & The Listener curate the best written and audio-recorded content from a variety of categories - completely remotely. 
As an author of Thinking Statistically and The Business of Big Data, Uri reveals his take on statistics in startups, onboarding effectively and improving your judgment.
As the main topic, we will discuss the importance of tacit knowledge - information and wisdom that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalizing it -  and how to share it effectively in a remote company. 
Together with Uri, we will discuss the following topics:
  • Defining tacit knowledge and why it is so important in a remote setting. 
  • Using software to facilitate tacit knowledge.
  • How to use effective communication as a competitive startup advantage.
  • Which areas will benefit most from a better transfer of knowledge.

Stay tuned for the next episode, in which we will talk with Rodolphe from Remotive.io - an initiative helping tech professionals to land remote jobs.
