How to overcome time zone differences?

  • Use Agile methodology

It is much easier to control web development companies with the help of Agile methodology, that ensures constant communication and transparency. Special trackers and CRMs are used to control the progress.

  • Create calendar invites

Remember, that you always have to send a calendar invite to client or employee when working in different time zones. This will guarantee that you’ve got the correct time and that you both know when you’re actually meeting.

  • Watch deadlines

If the time difference is more than 8 hours, you may have to structure your day differently to get work done on time.

  • Be aware of cultural differences

Work habits in the USA, Germany or Asia differ a lot. Some regions take lunch at different times or don’t work traditional hours. Be very sensitive to cultural differences.

Don’t be afraid to create global projects!

As you can see, working in different time zones is not that challenging as it might seem. Do not be in doubt when it comes to the question of hiring or collaborating with foreign professionals.
