Virtual Team Building

Virtual Team Building

Teaming is an accepted method to process work and to combine skills that may be dispersed throughout an organization. But with the globalization of corporations, telecommuting, and workers performing during different shifts or from different time zones, teaming often is difficult.

Enter the virtual team. This new type of team can meet the flexible and changing environment corporations must respond to if they want to remain competitive. Virtual teams allow corporate entities to continue the work of a team 24 hours a day by crossing traditional time barriers. For example, a document that began in London is added to—after the London worker retires for the day—by a worker in Boston who passes the document to a worker in Taipei when the Boston workday closes. When the London worker returns to work the next morning the document arrives electronically from Taipei, now two cycles further along in development.
