The components that make up a 21st century global virtual organization are geographically distributed, functionally or culturally diverse, electronically linked and connected via lateral relationships. Due to these attributes, virtual teams allow organization to tap into their knowledge and expertise of employees. However, there are a lot of constraints and barriers involved in managing or sharing the knowledge between the team members and the organization. One of the key relationships in knowledge management or knowledge sharing in virtual teams is in identifying the amount of motivation and trust existing between the team members and team leaders.
