Product description

The original edition of "Mastering Virtual Teams" offered a first of its kind tool kit for leaders and members of virtual teams. Now, this revised and expanded second edition includes a CD-ROM packed with useful resources that allow virtual teams to access and use the book's many checklists, assessments, and other practical tools quickly and easily. The authors provide updated guidelines, strategies, and best practices for working cross-culturally and cross-functionally, across time and distance, to see a project through. The useful tools, exercises, and real-life examples show how anyone can master the unique dynamics of virtual team participation in an environment where the old rules no longer apply.

Review quote

"Clear and practical guidance on one of the most pressing problems in every multinational enterprise--how to work across the boundaries of time, space, and culture. This book represents an important step forward in our fundamental understanding of succeeding in today's global marketplace." (David R. Whitwam, chairman and CEO, Whirlpool Corporation) "Most work in most organizations most of the time is done by teams. Many now need to be virtual. This book explains what, why, and how, with down-to-earth concepts and useful applications." (Joseph White, dean, University of Michigan Business School) "This book is an important contribution to both practice and theory. The authors capture the full challenge of leading and working across traditional organizational boundaries and offer practical, sound guidance for leveraging maximum performance."

The exercises and tools are immediately applicable and work in any organization or culture." (Nikki Adams, director of training, Seagate Technology)
