In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall? I cannot claim to be an expert, and I feel like this topic demands a lot of soft skills such as communication skills, team skills, handling cultural and work style issues, etc.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

Instead of satisfying art lovers, corporate curation saves enormous amounts of time, keeps teams on the same page, and equips everyone with the latest insights. Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.” Sorting through posts made me think critically and see patterns.

Best practice exists only in simple working environments.
