Α summary of what you will read
A project professional of today lives in an increasingly virtual world, resulting in the need to lead virtual projects. The dynamics of a remote team require project managers to communicate with their teams differently. In this paper, we introduce the current situation and share best practices and practical strategies. These will help a project leader bridge the culture, time and language barriers and help to eliminate the distance across virtual teams, both teams within an organization and those including freelancers and partners from different organizations.
Learn more about running effective virtual meetings, using video, communicating to engage your virtual team, building connections with your team, managing conflict as well as recruiting and developing virtual team members, in the advent of globalization.
