Virtual teams are becoming ubiquitous in contemporary organizations. Many managers stress their positive influence on organizational flexibility, cost saving, better allocation of resources, and increase of innovations. There are also many challenges coming from the geographic dispersion of team members and electronic, indirect communication between them. Managing this kind of team is much more complicated than the traditional one and requires specific knowledge. This article examines differences between traditional and virtual teams and what these differences mean for management. (original abstract)
