"Current research on virtual teaming indicates that it will continue to grow in importance globally across all sectors and institutions. Virtual teaming offers significant benefits to organizations with geographically distributed staff and stakeholders. However, a great gap exists between expectations and performance. Virtual teaming and leadership is simply more demanding than its live counterpart. The greatest challenge is loss of visceral human connection that comes with traditional face-to-face teaming. There’s a huge gap between management expectations and organizational performance vis-à-vis virtual teaming. Global practice is outpacing research and development. There’s a growing need for more responsive types of online training expressly for virtual team formation and deployment."
