Leading Virtual Teams

Virtual teams are a reality today. Most large organizations have multiple divisions and locations. Smaller companies may have team members working at different sites, and the current trend to working collaboratively with suppliers, partner organizations, and clients, gives more rise to the need to have diversely-located team members work effectively together.

Virtual teams have many obstacles to overcome. They have to deal with the usual project challenges, and in addition may face very significant communication, motivational, and organizational issues.

In this 1-day course, you will examine the communication and team-building issues of implementing effective virtual teams, and suggest strategies, tools, and techniques to empower the project manager or business analyst to meet the challenges.
