How do you know if you are doing a good job at virtual teams project management? What is your criteria for making sure your team is on the right path to get results? Being responsible for project delivery requires more than just telling your team what you expect. You have to get involved by listening, questioning and coordinating.
Although deliverables are measurable, and therefore straightforward, they can become comingled with the other elements of team success- communication, trust/accountability, and conflict management and are subject to similar pressures and complexities.
Managing virtual project teams is not easy when teams are distributed globally and when you factor in intricate technological issues, outsourced work groups, cultural differences, budgetary pressures, and disparate regulatory requirements.
