Virtual Team Building > Establish Processes

Establish Processes

A vital role of the team leader is to help establish the team's processes and strategies to stay on task. Each member of a virtual team comes from a background that has its own work processes and strategies. A virtual team has to find a way to incorporate and adjust standard processes to the team's work. These adjusted processes must become accepted standards and should minimize the damage of any changes that could influence the team, such as the entry or departure of team members or international events that might hamper communication channels.

Draw a Mission Statement

Drawing up a detailed team mission statement and formal goal definition provides virtual teams with a structure. This structure will help the team stay on task. The processes and norms that develop out of the mission statement will serve as a bridge between cultures because they become the team's processes as opposed to those of a specific culture. Processes should support multicultural and multifunctional task orientations.
