Editorial reviews

Globalisation means that many employees have to operate in teams that are separated by time and distance as well as function and culture, and this requires new competencies and understandings. This book is a practical toolkit for those in virtual teams, both leaders and members. It details the skills necessary to manage the unique dynamics of participation in virtual teams, and offers solutions to the unique challenges of working cross-culturally and cross-functionally.
