Advances in communication and information technology create new opportunities for organizations to build and manage virtual teams. Such teams are composed of employees from different genders, experiences, back grounds and geographic locations. Virtual teams have become a norm for organizations whose members work across disparate geographical locations, relying primarily or exclusively, on the usage of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for the completion of common goals. This paper attempts to explain the role of vital elements like trust, information sharing and communication, in building virtual teams. This study strives towards developing a set of factors using SEM that can be used by managers of virtual teams for establishing an efficacious relationship amongst the members.
