According to the “State of Engineering Leadership 2021,” a report produced by Plato and Lohika, “While companies with distributed teams gained an upper hand in management, smaller teams tasted the bitterness of prioritization, alignment, Zoom fatigue, and a company culture that was constantly shifting beneath their feet.”

At the same time, some teams welcomed the 100% remote model and reported increased productivity. As we consider a hybrid model that includes a partial return to the office, what practices from last year will continue? In other words, what will stay and what will go?

In this 60-minute Live Q&A, we’ll discuss how engineering teams are transitioning from 100% remote work to a hybrid model.
