Today’s world thrives on globalization and no corporations can escape from it. The business environment is expanding into various geographical locations and into various functional backgrounds. It is becoming more and more difficult to manage these vast geographical diverse teams effectively.

They come from diverse functional areas and they find themselves interacting with someone from the other part of the globe. This report is focused on exploring the key elements that play role in global teams.

The intention of this paper is to point out the challenges faced by virtual teams and organizations in managing the technology and conflicts.
