Chapter 7. Unit summary: Fundamentals of virtual teams

Topic A In this unit, you learned that virtual teams consist of members who exchange information and ideas to solve a problem or make a decision. The types of virtual teams are networked, parallel, project development, production, and management teams.
Topic B Next, you learned that virtual teams offer several benefits to those who enjoy meeting new people and exploring the diversity among people working in different locations. Then, you learned that virtual team members complete three types of work: parallel, sequential, and collaborative. You also learned that virtual team members divide their meetings into four categories; information-sharing, discussion, decision-making, and product-producing meetings.
Topic C Finally, you learned that conducting a face-to-face orientation session is the ideal way to orient participants to a virtual team setting. Next, you learned that the length of an orientation session depends on the complexity of the task of the team. You also learned that team-orientation sessions must be carefully planned to allow ample time for teams to develop the team performance plan and interpersonal relationships among team members.
