Working With A Virtual Team


The term virtual team refers to a team that, for the most part, is linked through communication that is not face to face—e-mail, voice mail, telephone, videoconferencing, and Internet-based forums. Many of today's teams are virtual to some extent—that is, they include members who are physically separated from their teammates: company employees in global locations, a representative of a key supplier, or perhaps an important customer.

Some teams are entirely virtual; their members rarely, if ever, meet face-to-face. Nevertheless, virtual teams are real teams, and when they perform their missions well, they offer numerous advantages to companies.
