I read an article a while back but needed to refer back to it again recently. The artical was ‘How Successful Virtual Teams Collaborate‘ from Harvard Business Review.
The reason for me having to refer back to this article was that I was faced with implementing a Winning Teams Professional program across several countries but with limited opportunity to engage face to face. More and more companies are developing virtual teams within their working environments. Teams that are often not from the same companies or located in the same town or country. Team members who work for different companies are essentially strangers to one another and have different cultural and professional backgrounds. Key consideration in team size, playing games and training for collaboration were some of the key points derived from this article and I trust you will take something useful from this as well, so please give it a read.
