Teams - Remote and Virtual

by Claire Snowdon and Mark Bouch

Teams – Remote and Virtual

Virtual team management is the ability to organise and coordinate with effect a group whose members are not in the same location or time zone, and may not even work for the same organisation. The predictor of success is – as always – clarity of purpose. But group participation in achieving that is more than ever important to compensate for lost context. Virtual team management requires deeper understanding of people, process and technology and recognition that trust is a more limiting factor compared with face to face interactions.
