Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Chase DeHan, and welcome to my course, Building Successful Virtual Teams. I'm currently the Manager of Data Science at Tesorio and manage a team of people distributed all over the world. I also hold a PhD in economics from the University of Utah. Managing people is hard, and managing people in separate locations is even harder. In this course, we are going to talk about some tactics to manage virtual teams more effectively. Some of the major topics that we will cover include hiring and retaining talent virtually, measuring what matters and effectively using OKRs, tactics for successfully operating a virtual team. And by the end of this course, you'll feel more comfortable with managing a virtual team with some specific actual things you will be able to implement. There aren't any prerequisites for this course. It's designed to be applicable for team leads, managers, and executives. I hope you'll join me on this journey with the Building Successful Virtual Teams course at Pluralsight.
