Abstract

Virtual teams have evolved since the 1990’s and are becoming increasingly popular for many reasons, i.e. securing the right person for the project, outsourcing, offshoring and the resulting need to work with global resources, as well as avoidance of travel due to cost and security concerns. Are there significant and important differences between virtual teams and traditional teams that are critical to successful project completion? This paper will discuss a research in progress aimed at identifying differences in successful virtual and traditional teams.
