A Framework for Leader Effectiveness in Virtual Teams

Due to technological advancements, organizations have more tools for employee development at their disposal. Technology has been utilized by organizations in training and development programs for leaders to enhance their skills and abilities. We argue that the success of these programs is due in part to individual differences and that an individual’s success in these programs has subsequent influence over malleable individual characteristics. We integrate the literature on individual differences, training and development in a virtual setting, and leadership effectiveness in virtual teams to propose a framework on how these variables interact to achieve success.

Knowledge development and creation of a shared understanding among team members are often stressed as fundamental to successful innovation processes. This paper aims to address how use of ICT in team collaboration impacts on the creation of a shared understanding and knowledge development within the teams, and how these factors are important for organizations' innovation capabilities.

Innovation in Globally Distributed Teams: The Role of LMX, Communication

For globally distributed teams charged with innovation, member contributions to the team are crucial for effective performance. Prior research, however, suggests that members of globally distributed teams often feel isolated and excluded from their team's activities and decisions. How can leaders of such teams foster member inclusion in team decisions? Drawing on leader–member exchange (LMX) theory, we propose that for distributed teams, LMX and communication frequency jointly shape member influence on team decisions. Findings from a test of our hypotheses using data from 40 globally distributed teams suggest that LMX can enhance member influence on team decisions when it is sustained through frequent leader–member communication. This joint effect is strengthened as team dispersion increases. At the team level, member influence on team decisions has a positive effect on team innovation.
