Project Details

What We Need
  • A written document that summarizes the Organization’s needs and goals for remote staff and virtual collaboration
  • Best practices and tips for the Organization’s remote staff members, including recommendations on the best virtual collaboration tools, such as Slack, Trello, Google apps, Zoom, etc.
  • Recommendations for managing projects with remote staff, including how to set up a digital workspace for easy collaboration, and how to establish communication styles and structures that support effective virtual teamwork
  • Advice on budget considerations for tools, travel, and in-person meetings for remote staff members
Additional Details

We are a new team that will benefit from remote work recommendations. Monica (Executive Director) started in September 2019 and Jacques (Program Manager) started in July 2020. Our highest priority is a project management tool such as Smartsheets, Trello, Asana to help us organize our work.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have 2 dedicated staff & a good start at remote work, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have lists of projects and work tasks, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,776 , allowing us to host activities of interest to the long neglected neighborhood that surrounds the Buffalo Central Terminal so that we grow and elevate together.

Our organization has worked 20+ years for our current once-in-a-lifetime support of funding and community interest that enables us to advance the reuse of the long vacant Buffalo Central Terminal. A well organized remote working plan will help us to maximize this opportunity
