For many DevOps teams, working from home means working at different times of the day. Some IT workers who are immigrants or who were in the United States on visas headed to other countries when the pandemic began and are now working from other time zones. Others are juggling childcare duties with their significant others and can only be available during certain hours of the day. And some teams may even have been forced to take intermittent unpaid furloughs as a result of the crisis.

The net result of all this upheaval means that DevOps team members may not be working at the same time. Experts recommend that leaders offer as much flexibility as possible while also making the most of the time when everyone is available. Try to schedule standups, meetings, and critical work during the hours when most people are on the clock.
