Manager's Guide to Virtual Teams

by: Kimball Fisher and Mareen Fisher


Abstract: Globalization and new technologies have made team collaboration from distant geographical locations—on the road, from home or client sites, even on the other side of the globe—a routine part of business. Managing these teams requires new skills and sensitivities to maximize team and organizational performance. Emphasizing pragmatism over theory and offering helpful tips instead of vague observations, Manager's Guide to Virtual Teams helps you bridge the communication gaps created by geographical separation and get peak performance from employees you rarely see.
