Technology and globalization have combined to create a work environment in which teams

communicate and collaborate virtually, thereby breaking the boundaries of time, geography – even the

organization itself. To ensure projects are completed successfully, managers must find ways to help team members work together effectively, no matter how much distance might separate them. The Virtual Teams 2-day workshop is specifically designed to help managers and team members optimize project performance when working in virtual environments. Participants will learn how to align business and project goals with performance metrics, quantify and measure results, maximize team dynamics and build lasting foundations of trust.
