Leading Virtual Teams
Leading Virtual Teams - 2 Session Seminar
Several factors have led to the emergence of a new form of team working. As Virtual Private Networks, Wi-Fi, and low-cost communication methods such as instant messaging and video chat become more reliable and commonplace, home-working and teleworking become an option for many teams. This option has provided organizations with numerous economic alternatives to the traditional face-to-face team structure.
Overall, virtual teams are very similar to traditional teams. However, communication and team building occur more naturally in face-to-face teams. Because of this, leaders of virtual teams should take deliberate actions to build in activities and practices that are vital to team success.
