Will the impact of COVID19 on my team really be that significant?

In short, yes. The COVID19 pandemic has dramatically accelerated the transition towards virtual cooperation. Studies like this one from McKinsey quantify the impact, and the results align with our personal experience of significantly increased home office work. Team members who shared office in the past, are now physically separated. At first, the impact on such 'local' engineering teams will be manageable, but as team members come and go similar barriers as in global engineering teams will arise. Global teams need advanced structures (like synthesized in MACH 8's MOMENTUM method) to reach their highest potential, and so will local teams in the near future.

Can you tell us a bit more about yourself?

Sure can! I (Michael) was born and raised in a small Belgian city, back in the early 80s. I'm a PhD in Engineering from the University of Leuven, and devoted most of my professional career to developing engineering teams in Europe and Asia. I lived and worked in China for several years, which had a large impact on the person I am today. I'm happily married to my Chinese wife who I've met in Turkey back in the days we were both working on our PhDs. We have two beautiful children, and currently live in Belgium. I'm an avid reader, and like to go into nature with my mountainbike. You can find more information on our About page.
