We talk about a Virtual Team. if team members are located in different places. That can be anywhere around the globe. Working together in this fashion requires a different approach to teamwork, but offers some really neat advantages: wider choice of skills, faster implementation and execution, reduced travel time and expenses, flexibility and more.
If virtual teamwork is so good, why then is it not universal? Research points to a large number of issues waiting to be resolved, both social and technological. It will take some time before all of the main issues have been addressed. Traditionally, managers like to see who is working for them, however, the benefits of virtual teamwork have shown to outweigh the shortcomings, even at this stage of the development process.
A most effective tool to advance the process is computer-based teamwork simulation helping project people develop their management skills. Scatterwork offers a live interactive team simulation program, which helps team members acquire management competences, leadership and team working skills.
Learning never turns into a boring experience as team members don’t work alone, a project manager can invite team members to participate over the internet, regardless where these members are located.
