As companies continue to globalize operations to better serve customers, managing employees who do not work on the traditional corporate campus becomes increasingly difficult. The pervasivenss of virtual teams, which have become mainstays in organizational structures, raises the question of how to manage geographically-distributed individuals who must complete interdependent tasks and share joint responsibility for outcomes. Best practices, integrated processes and tools can be used, though, to optimize global teams and projects in the virtual environment.
This meeting report includes three-four page case study summaries from three organizations on how to optimize virtual teams. This was based on a meeting held in November 2005. It will benefit those who must manage, coordinate, and otherwise work with virtual teams.
