Virtual Teams Can Thrive Without Adding New Technology - Audio-Visual Presentation Showcases How

Share Article

Virtual teams' typical roadblocks can be fixed without adding new technology. Bioteaming expert Ken Thompson and Online Collaboration expert Robin Good have put together a free online audio-video presentation that shows just how this can be achieved by following nature's biological teams million-year-old lessons.

Bioteaming expert Ken Thompson and Online Collaboration expert Robin Good have once again joined forces to release a new, free to access, audio-visual presentation focused on explaining how typical problems affecting the productivity of distributed virtual teams can be effectively overcome by following nature's million-year-old lessons.

In this elegantly designed audio-visual showcase, Mr Thompson clearly explains with personal examples the three typical problems affecting virtual teams. Tactical inefficiencies, mishandled coordinating plans and a general lack of open free communication can rapidly destroy the effectiveness of any organization team whether it operates within the walls of the same building or across different continents.

The predicament promoted is one of learning from the unique examples offered in nature by successful living teams. By analyzing and carefully researching the work of scientists in the fields of socio-biology, cybernetics, complexity, ecology, evolution and cognitive science, the two have been able to identify and extract a growing set of key principles underlying and determining successful team operation even under the harshest circumstances.

That's right, by extracting, synthesizing, and reapplying nature's team best evolutionary lessons to the human business organizational context, Ken Thompson and Robin Good have started a new field of research and study in and by itself. Termed Bio-teaming, they define it as "the study, identification and application of nature's best team successful behavior strategies to the realm of human-based business networked teams".

Bioteaming principles and behavior tactics do not require the use of specific additional supporting software or hardware technologies and are therefore much easier and less costly to adopt than any other online collaboration solution out there.

Bioteaming strategies can be learned, used and applied by anyone charged with the responsibility of making today's business networked teams operate to fulfill the traits that should uniquely characterize them:

  • efficiency
  • speed
  • flexibility
  • reliability
  • intelligence

Bioteaming is all about learning from nature's own biological teams the key principles of effective group collaboration and transferring them into guidelines and cooperative work approaches that can be successfully adopted by today's corporate human teams.
