What steps should organizations take to get the most out of their virtual teams?
Virtual teams are becoming very effective nowadays with the rise of technology. They have many positive sides as well as negative. To keep everything in good shape and functioning, organizations should take some steps like build trust between members. To build this trust, a company should get the right people first and assign the right task to each individual. They should all have good communication between each other and the company for them to be on the same page and going toward the same goal. In any team, each person has to complete their work in order to complete the puzzle. If one does not perform up to standard, the whole team fails, and it is especially important with people you cannot face directly.
They should have regular meetings to see the progress level, and respect each others’ time to be more effective. Virtual teams are also good because it benefits on cutting the travel expenses for people, and achieving the same results. The problem with that can be the time difference between members, when some are working in one place, other may be sleeping, so it creates discomfort which needs more time management.
