Building the Virtual Team

Virtual Communication Across Cultures
"The Virtual Team has had a really positive impact.We use it as part of our overall diversity strategy to help people become more conscious of cultural diversity." Bonnie Roelofs, Shell Oil

Fact: Working with and within a cross cultural business environment is challenging. There can be problems with communication, trust and responsibility that lead to poor business performance. However with the added of complication of working from remote locations and using virtual technology these problems can become intensified.

If global businesses are to grow and develop, personnel must develop their cross cultural skills both in terms of face to face interaction and across technological lines.

Building the Virtual Team is a first class production designed to help HR staff and intercultural trainers examine the role technology can have on team communication and processes with members of virtual teams.

The DVD follows a high level manager and the problems she faces in virtual team management as she struggles to lead her managers in Africa, Asia, India and Latin America.

Designed to stimulate lively discussion and effective learning, this easy-to-use yet highly effective cross cultural training tool is based on expert research on developing virtual teams.
