Virtual and Collaborative Teams: Process, Technologies, and Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the twenty first century it is nearly impossible to engage in any type of organizational task without group support. Increased employee participation and a heightened focus on distributed (or geographically separated) teams highlight the role of virtual teams in the workplace. In spite of the increasing importance of virtual teams in organizational and educational settings, few resources currently exist to guide practitioners in the area. Virtual and Collaborative Teams: Process, Technologies and Practice provides a variety of perspectives on virtual and collaborative teams, bringing together writings by corporate practitioners and researchers. Contributors range from corporate practitioners to academics from the fields of business, communication, psychology and management in the United States, Europe and Asia. Book jacket.

Synopsis:

Virtual and Collaborative Teams is of importance to practitioners and researchers because it brings together in a single accessible source, a variety of current research and practice on the subject of virtual and collaborative teams. Geographic distance, technology, lack of social presence, lack of adequate training and lack of instructional resources are just some of the unique challenges faced by virtual teams. This book is a unique resource in that it provides a variety of research and practice from a wide range of disciplines, nationally and internationally. The essays blends theory and practice, encompassing quantitative and qualitative research, case studies, interview research and theoretical models.
