Virtual Team Building And Management Course: Introduction

The concept of a virtual team is still new, but possibly one of the best benefits is that you can take your pick from the best in the business from around the world.

Virtual Team Building And Management Course :Course Outline

Virtual teams are the new pupil in class, it’s still early days for the concept but it is catching on quickly, and possibly the biggest advantage in investing in a virtual team is that you can pick from the best experts on the planet, actual geographical location does not matter. Building a team – whether it will be a team commuting into the office a remote team or a virtual team, necessitates looking for the same qualities and characteristics of team members. All successful teams are built from the same foundations, such as motivation, initiative, objective achieving, goal setting, and collaboration. At the start of the project – team members should have a face to face meeting. At this meeting the big picture of the project should be defined as well as the various skills of each team member. Discussion should be encouraged and managing the conversation should be left to the team. Adding diversity to the team adds value to it, diverse team members with different genders and cultural backgrounds bring a fresh and unique perspective to projects. A virtual team necessarily needs to be expert with technology and computer systems since all their work will be done remotely. Before the project begins in the virtual world it is essential to establish ground rules of communication and contribution. Virtual team meetings will always be an issue when team members live in different time zones, but this should not be an obstacle that prevents regular and effective communication, this should be solved by the team manager where necessary, making all team members aware of meetings and trying to schedule meetings that suit everyone’s working day. Communication is vital amongst team members and they should communicate early on in the project and often. Staying in constant contact keeps everyone on the same page, striving towards the same goal.TIP: Cultural differences add value to virtual teams, it teaches us respect for different cultures and it teaches us to embrace our differences. Some people from different cultures may even have a different work style and it could be better suited to the project than the standard work style. To succeed with a virtual team one must have clear goals and communicate them effectively, the supervisor and the team should set the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)and keep them in place. Successful teams build a team culture and part of the team’s success is timely feedback from the manager or supervisor. We round off our workshop on virtual teams with a module dealing with poor team players and how to be proactive when choosing a team. The last module deals with choosing the right tools such as the right communication software and collaborating and sharing tools.
