Communication and Team Building
Virtual work teams -- Management, Personnel management, Teams in the workplace
More and more, companies are using teams of personnel that span multiple locations and multiple disciplines. This can increase competitiveness by shortening turnaround time of a project and being able to utilize a wider talent pool that a company would not otherwise be able to reach. Many challenges come along with these virtual teams however, because the members and leader are not in physical proximity to each other. A literature study is done to examine these challenges, and empirical evidence is given by group members in Team 5 that build on previous research. It was found that strategically timed meetings can help close the gap on communication of a team and allow them to function better when working virtually.
