Abstract

A Virtual Team is known as a Geographically Dispersed Team (GDT) – is a group of individuals who work across time, space, and organizational boundaries with links strengthened by webs of communication technology. They have complementary skills and are committed to a common purpose, have interdependent performance goals, and share an approach to work for which they hold themselves mutually accountable. Geographically dispersed teams allow organizations to hire and retain the best people regardless of location. A virtual team does not always mean Tele-workers. Tele-workers are defined as individuals who work from home. Many virtual teams in today’s organizations consist of employees both working at home and small groups in the office but in different geographic locations or during different shifts/time.
