Globalization where it opens opportunities, never possible before; also creates hindrances never emerged before. Creating geographically dispersed teams is essential part of creating the best in-‐class products leveraging expertise around the globe with optimal cost-‐benefit projections. In-‐efficient decision making across such virtual teams could be a major stumbling stone.
