Communication and Team Building
Global virtual teams face many challenges. Perhaps the most difficult is communicating among themselves. When team members come from different cultures communication is difficult. Understanding the basics of virtual teams is critical to understanding how to communicate within a global virtual team. But teams must be careful to choose how they communicate. The cultures of the team members should be used to help the team decide their plan for effective communication. But inevitably all teams have miscommunication. This paper discusses ways to prevent and resolve miscommunication, and the skills needed to do so.
