Virtual work teams -- Management, Personnel management, Teams in the workplace, Virtual work teams -- Cultural aspects, Globalization


With the advent of globalization in the international world economy, cross-cultural (CC) teams will become more of the norm than the exception. New managerial skills and understanding will be required to elevate the CC team performance on the performance curve. A proactive management style will be required to map the team culture and demonstrate cultural intelligence with respect to diversity management. This paper presents and addresses the argument that cross-cultural teams have the potential to reach a higher performance impact than non-cross-cultural teams, with the management of diversity leaders as the driving force of how quickly the team can achieve the higher level of performance impact.
