  • STUDY OVERVIEW
  • BENCHMARK CLASS
  • PRESENTER INFO
Arvind Malhotra studied far-flung teams at 54 leading companies and documented their findings in "Deploying Far-Flung Teams: A Guidebook for Managers.Far-flung teams are distinguished from virtual teams by the following criteria:

Nature of the task - (complex and uncertain vs. routine)
Diversity within the team - representing multiple regions and or companies
Degree of virtuality - most of the core work is done through electronic means

Drawing on quantitative survey results and qualitative interviews, Arvind and Ann will discuss how high performers among their benchmark class optimize far-flung teams. In addition they will share proven best practices, anecdotes, and checklists for managers of virtual teams.

Practices that they will share are categorized into three broad areas, including:
Establishing a supportive business environment;
Leading far-flung teams; and
Integrating technology into the way that work is done in far-flung teams.
