Getting the best from virtual teams

This course looks good…

Venue: CILIP, 7 Ridgmount Street, London, WC1E 7AE
Date: Wednesday, 7 November, 2012 – 09:30 – 16:30
Course Outline:
No matter what the size of the organisation, working in a virtual team is now the way that discussions are held and decisions made. Often members of these teams are external to the organisation, and may well be in a different country and time zone.

Virtual teams are not a new way of working, and over the last three decades a great deal of research and experience has led to the establishment of a substantial amount of good practice in the management of virtual teams. However it seems that few organisations offer staff tuition in either how to participate in a virtual team, or in managing such a team.

Among the subjects to be covered will be:

  • Understanding why and how virtual teams differ from co-located teams
  • Making good use of audio and video technologies
  • Preparing for virtual team meetings
  • The best structure for a virtual team meeting
  • How to address the common challenges of virtual teams
  • Evaluating team performance
  • Developing training courses for virtual teams and team members

The course will be a mixture of presentations and group work to enable delegates to gain an insight into the benefits and challenges of virtual teams

Who should attend:
Anyone who has to manage or participate in virtual team meetings and wishes to get the best out of other team members during and between meetings.

Course Presenter: Martin White
The course will be presented by Martin White, Managing Director, Intranet Focus Ltd. He has been involved in managing virtual teams for over thirty years, and regularly works with multi-national virtual teams as a key element of his consulting projects.
