Virtual teams have become a business necessity as a result of globalization, skill shortages, and 24/7 operations, but they remain extremely challenging. With limited face-to-face contact to build trust between team members, communication and productivity are often further reduced by cross-cultural misunderstandings.

Key takeaways

  • Identify the main challenges for cross-cultural virtual teams
  • Learn strategies to improve in three key areas: interpersonal communications, getting work done, and managing conflict
