Virtual Teams - Real Problems - Possible Solutions
If you work in a large organization, then chances are better than good that you work on at least one 'virtual team,' possibly more. If you're like most people, you find this 'difficult,' if not almost impossible from time to time.
The obstacles to performance are many; they include time zone differences, matrix management, the blurring of the work/life boundary, and cultural differences that are totally hidden until you're ensnared in some conflict that no one really understands.
Welcome to the modern world.
In the past, a 'meeting' was something personal. We could see the people we worked with - we knew the people we worked with - we might even have a personal relationship with the people we worked with. Today, we work with complete strangers. People we'll never meet. People we have nothing in common with. Yet? We expect virtual Teams to operate as effectively as 'real' teams.
This presentation builds on some recent work with a multinational organization. It will summarize the issues surrounding virtual teams, paying specific attention to the unexpected issues. It will also offer some possible solutions to the discovered problems. The webinar will summarize the observations/findings by relating the nature of Virtual Teams to Dr. David Rock's SCARF model.
