Our Virtual Teaming practice focuses on the importance of understanding and adapting communication to support team dynamics and facilitate success when working in virtual and remote teams.

Today's business environments are no longer confined to national borders. Working teams span time zones, borders and continents. Such teams consist of members located in different countries that communicate via technology to complete a project task.

Global teams are presented with unique challenges and must learn new skills and techniques to establish and maintain a high performance. Language, cultural norms, business practices, and social differences must be managed effectively through strong leadership and cultural intelligence.

While a dispersed workforce is more agile and better able to compete, it also presents a challenge to managers who are accustomed to supervising by walking from desk to desk.

"In the current economic climate, companies are looking carefully at how to best leverage global virtual teams," said Chris Brannen, CEO and Founder of The Brannen Group. "Our Virtual Teaming practice focuses on the importance of understanding and adapting communication to support team dynamics and facilitate success when working in virtual and remote teams."
