Presenter: Marco Antonio Archanjo
Description: As companies continue to go global and the complexity of engineering projects increase each day, managing virtual teams dispersed worldwide is one of the challenges to be addressed by engineering project managers. Cultural diversity, different languages, distance and team members in different time zones may create communication barriers that jeopardize project success. Leading virtual project teams spread around the world is a skill to be mastered by engineering project managers. This presentation provides an overview of the main challenges in managing virtual global teams, how to achieve high performance, and ways to mitigate risks of having distributed teams. Illustrations of different scenarios are provided through a case study.
