Item description for Distributed Teams- An introduction to virtual teams and organizations by Jan Sroka...
As a result of the development of new technologies during the last decades, the ways people and teams work together have changed significantly. Nonmanual workers no longer need to work in the same place and at the same time to achieve their goals. IT and the internet as well as the change effected in corporations through mergers and acquisitions have created a new style of working together as a team. This book tries to give a better insight into the underlying concepts and ideas on virtual teams and virtual organizations. Their requirements and demands are outlined and means of communication are explained as well as the need for trust and specific skills of team members in order to succeed. It introduces virtual organizations and tips on how to manage a geographically dispersed work force. This book is intended for people interested in deploying distributed teams, project managers facing geographically dispersed teams and people who are interested in an introduction to computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and virtual organizations.
