Team Effectiveness - Effective Virtual Teams
There are many reasons why organisations work across organisational, geographical and cultural boundaries, despite the complexity of managing virtual teams:
- Matrix structures
- Project-based (temporary team) working
- Delivering through partnerships
- Teams with external contributors
- Home working.
Successful teams change their ways of working, rather than solely relying on technology to overcome the difficulties of managing at a distance. They take a more explicit and deliberate approach to building relationships, tailoring roles and processes, and using technology in more innovative ways to fully realise the benefits that the diversity and flexibility of virtual teams can bring.
We help teams and organisations explore how to develop and maintain effective distance relationships, construct and lead successful virtual teams, and to use technology and existing organisational events more effectively. Our approach is based on real experiences; having worked in virtual and distant teams as consultants, and with organisations that are getting it right.
