The journal reflects these aims. It was founded more than fifty years ago and, from the start, its far-sighted mission was to encourage communication of the very best cancer research from laboratories and clinics in all countries. The breadth of its coverage, its editorial independence and it consistent high standards, have made BJC one of the world's premier general cancer journals. Its increasing popularity is reflected by a steadily rising impact factor.
The research on virtual team leadership does well to describe the skills that are needed to guide and direct effective teams. However, what is presupposed in the previous research is that virtual teams have assigned leaders. That is, leaders were either management, appointed by management or were chosen by the team itself.

EQUIPES VIRTUAIS: UM ESTUDO DE CASO DE IMPLANTAÇÃO DE UM SISTEMA NA AMÉRICA LATINA
Nader Ale Ebrahim's insight:
Estudo de caso que apresenta um projeto internacional de implantação de novos processos de negócios com suporte de sistemas de informação em empresa multinacional norte-americana com utilização de equipes virtuais sediadas em São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Bogotá e Cidade do México. A metodologia utilizada o desenvolvimento deste artigo constituiu-se de levantamento bibliográfico e coleta, agrupamento e análise de dados. Este projeto teve três fatores-chave na sua execução: primeiro, foi a seleção, disponibilização e uso das tecnologias adequadas; o segundo fator, a comunicação, com Plano de Comunicação desenvolvido em parceria com a Área de Marketing da empresa; e o terceiro fator, a gestão de pessoas, atribuindo prioridade aos aspectos culturais, como: idioma, feriados, horário de trabalho e rotinas locais. O costumeiro atraso dos participantes para as reuniões de progresso do projeto foi um dos maiores obstáculos superados no curso do projeto.
The European Journal of Information Systems provides a distinctive European perspective on the theory and practice of information systems for a global audience. We encourage first rate research articles by academics, but also case studies and reflective articles by practitioners. We provide a critical view on technology, development, implementation, strategy, management and policy.
Organizations are currently facing important and unprecedented challenges in an ever dynamic, constantly changing and complex environment. Groups of individuals working across time, space and organizational boundaries with links strengthened by webs of communication technology, commonly referred to as virtual team, have become a 'norm' in order to cater to the needs of global market places. Thus, it becomes essential to understand those factors that impact some of the key team related measures like efficiency, effectiveness and productivity of this evolved team setting. This paper presents a conceptual model and develops testable propositions highlighting factors that affect team performance in globally distributed setting. The research focus of this paper is on the impact of diversity, distributedness and task characteristics on team performance in distributed settings. Analysis plan and directions for future research are also discussed in the paper.
