Large companies or multinationals tend to have teams that are distributed over a large geographical area. And these aren’t the only types of businesses that have this problem: it’s increasingly common for businesses (especially startups) to hire talent around the world to work remotely instead of having their physical headquarters in a city.

Aligning coherency

Clark Quinn

For one, those work teams can be at any level. There will be work teams at the level that the work gets done, but there’ll also be work teams at the management and even executive levels.

Then you can provide autonomy and the paths to mastery (the other two elements) and get people working from intrinsic motivation.
