Virtual Teams Project Management Focus On Teamwork

Watch Yael Zofi Talk About Virtual Teams Project Management At ODN

Virtual teams project management is becoming more important than ever as many managers struggle with uniting the virtual workforce and managing offshore teams. With constant changes occurring in the global business environment and economy, getting things done in teams is more important than ever. Given all the downsizing and organizational changes, much more is done virtually in teams. Existing teams have been reconfigured, and employees are working with people they hadn’t worked with before. There appears to be greater recognition that the ability to pull teams together and facilitate collaboration is more critical than in the past. The priority will be on building team chemistry and harmony, partnering across boundaries, and focusing on the company’s big picture interests when thinking about virtual teams project management.

So what does this mean for global leaders and management consultants working on virtual teams project management?
