Building Virtual Teams - Conversation, Awareness and Coordination - A Shared Commitment


When: Wednesday, March 11, 2009, Noon - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Mike Lujan


Brief Description

Even though our working relationships may not seem like ‘virtual’ ones, they very well could be. But what if they weren’t meant to be? Then, there are those situations where working relationships are meant to be geographically dispersed, where it’s all about working together apart. You’ll need a strong, well-thought-out foundation to make it successful.

I have compiled some ideas and suggestions for developing and implementing a Virtual Team strategy to fulfill a cooperative collaboration effort. Some of these include working as an independent consultant or contractor with others who are independent, perhaps having their own business. For me, many of these ideas and suggestions arose from my experience working remotely, often with others, on technical communications (primarily, technical writing) projects.

Productivity and results are the primary factors for making the Virtual Team approach successful. These factors can be successful when participants contribute creative techniques to develop relationships and build trust through a geographically dispersed team.
