How to Build Trust in a Virtual Workplace

How to Build Trust in a Virtual Workplace | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Keith Ferrazzi - HBR Blog]

Teams can't function well when co-workers don't trust one another. Building and maintaining trust in the traditional, physical workplace is difficult enough, but the process is even tougher in a virtual environment, where people often have to work with people they haven't met in person.

 

Some biologists believe that we are hardwired to distrust everyone except our own family members. Studies have shown, however, that trust can indeed be actively accelerated and maintained on virtual teams even when they have to be assembled on the fly with employees scattered across the globe. According to our research, the following best practices will help:

How to run a 100% virtual company | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

[Binfire blog]

Given all the attention on telecommuting and virtual operations, you would think there was now a huge roster of companies running entirely “in the cloud,” if you will. But most, if not all companies, still have a physical, core presence somewhere. And there’s a reason for that.

Here's The Most Efficient Way To Work With A Virtual Team

Here's The Most Efficient Way To Work With A Virtual Team | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

The expanding global and digital marketplace has made it possible for professionals to virtually work together no matter where they are in the world.

 

It's simple, efficient and cheap, but the lack of face-to-face time can also have a negative effect on your connection with your team, especially if you haven't already developed a core understanding of one another.

 

To get a better understanding of the challenges that may be faced when working on a project virtually, we spoke to Penelope Trunk, co-founder of Brazen Careerist who decided to move to Wisconsin even though her company takes place in Washington, D.C. Trunk continues to blog about working issues and trends from the Midwest.

ScienceDirect.com - International Journal of Project Management - Exploring the communication breakdown in global virtual teams | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

Virtual matrix-managed teams with geographically dispersed members are becoming increasingly common in the high-tech sector. These teams, referred to as global virtual teams (GVTs), are generally described as culturally diverse, geographically dispersed, electronically-communicating workgroups. They rapidly form, change, and dissolve due to dynamic changes in the market. In addition, most GVTs today have team members spread among several projects with competing priorities. Communication breakdown can wreak havoc on a project as team members struggle to effectively communicate and work with one another. As a result, project delivery risks with distributed teams tend to be greater when compared to co-located teams. To address this critical issue, this study investigates the types of factors that significantly contribute to communication breakdown by identifying five distinct areas through a series of interviews with project team members in high-tech companies. These areas are trust, interpersonal relations, cultural differences, leadership and technology. These criteria are analyzed using mathematical Decision Models taking expert opinions from professionals who worked in GVTs

What is this all about?

Virtual teamworking, working together while apart . Most of us do it in some form or other, but not all of us take the time or energy to make sure that we do it in the most effective or efficient way.

 

My mission as a virtual teamworking consultant is to help teams, individuals and organizations to make the most of this way of working together.

 

In this topic I'm collecting new material from the web that is relevant for virtual team members and virtual team leaders: hints, tips, good practices, and some philosophical stuff from time to time as well. I'm using this myself in the books and articles I'm writing, and in the courses that I am developing and delivering. I'm happy to share this: I strongly believe that knowledge - like love - can be multiplied by sharing.

Lifestyle-driven virtual teams: A new paradigm for professional services firms - Ivey Business Journal

Andrea Lekushoff - Ivey Business journal]

[Long, somewhat philosophical article, has some good thoughts, though ...]

Social changes in the workforce are leading more and more employees to demand more and more control over how, when, and where they work. The result, which is gaining increasing traction, is a rise in lifestyle-driven virtual teams. 24/7? Running to Gate 9? Who needs them. Especially when forward-looking employers can accommodate the needs and wants of talented, ambitious employees by creating lifestyle-driven virtual teams. This author describes how professional services firms that can make this approach work will make them employers of choice.

Modified stage-gate: a conceptual model of virtual product development process | Virtual R&D teams | Scoop.it

In today's dynamic marketplace, manufacturing companies are under strong pressure to introduce new products for long-term survival with their competitors. Nevertheless, every company cannot cope up progressively or immediately with the market requirements due to knowledge dynamics being experienced in the competitive milieu. Increased competition and reduced product life cycles put force upon companies to develop new products faster. In response to these pressing needs, there should be some new approach compatible in flexible circumstances. This paper presents a solution based on the popular Stage-Gate system, which is closely linked with virtual team approach. Virtual teams can provide a platform to advance the knowledge-base in a company and thus to reduce time-to-market. This article introduces conceptual product development architecture under a virtual team umbrella. The paper describes all the major aspects of new product development (NPD), NPD process and its relationship with virtual teams, Stage-Gate system finally presents a modified Stage-Gate system to cope up with the changing needs. It also provides the guidelines for the successful implementation of virtual teams in new product development.
