It is not a secret that managing  people whom you know personally or have at least shared a cup of morning coffee with is much easier than trying to approach those behind the screen of your 13 inch laptop.  My thoughts are that distance isn’t a barrier once the processes are set up right. Take a look at the simple list of principles that I try to follow to keep all of my fellow riselabers happy & on track.  Online calls are the new meetings. Remember how cool it was to ask a Lead developer out for a lunch and discuss all of the project risks and details in person? Well,…
