Topic: Managing Virtual Teams

Course description:

It is common to see clients and managers be frustrated when managing virtual teams. Working with people who have a variety of cultural backgrounds, and may never actually meet face-to-face can be complicated. The problem can be intensified with time zone differences and gaps in communication.

There are many reasons why people don’t like to manage and deal with virtual teams such as:

  • Problems in communication
  • Hard to share expectations when team’s members are not onsite – expectation of delivery, deadlines, and cost
  • The advantages of having in-person meetings/ personal touch contact is lost
  • Relationship among team’s members is weak   
  • Difficulties to manage different time zones
  • The sense of urgency seems to be missing in virtual teams.

However, market expansion of clients and talent resources in different countries push us to overcome these problems, virtual teams are the reality of how companies are structured nowadays and we don’t have an option of not working with them.  In contrary, we must learn how to manage virtual teams effectively to be successful in delivering projects at a global level.
