Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 18, 2014 -- Finally, a book on virtual teams written for global leaders by a leader with over twenty-five years’ real-world, global industry experience! Next week, Sheri Mackey, The Global Coach, releases her much-anticipated book, Virtual Success, at CSCMP 2014 in San Antonio, Texas. “As the supply chain industry's premier global event and Luminosity’s ties to the industry, The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals global conference is the perfect venue to launch Virtual Success,” Sheri explains.
Virtual Success is an essential book for the business world right now because virtual teams are a critical link to maintaining competitive advantage In an increasingly global marketplace. In excess of 80% of large companies use virtual teams - unfortunately, most global organizations don’t provide virtual leaders with the necessary tools and resources to be successful. Deploying Virtual Teams seems to be an easy choice on the surface, however it is often rife with unexpected challenges. The result is that only 18% of virtual teams successfully meet their goals and produce the desired results of their organizations… with billions of dollars of revenue lost each year—as well as many jobs. Virtual Success will change these low success rates for thousands of virtual teams worldwide as they discover the path to actual success!
The reality is that more than 1.5 billion people work virtually and this number will only continue to grow, as the reality of cost management and productivity increases continue to play an increasing role in effectively managing the business and creating economies of scale. As the CEO of Cisco Systems, John Chambers accurately predicts, “Globally linked virtual teams will transform every government and company in the world. Any of our peers who don’t do it won’t survive.”
Organizations that know how to facilitate global virtual teams have a distinct competitive advantage over organizations that do not do everything possible to enable virtual teams to succeed. The launch of Virtual Success provides a mechanism for organizations to know exactly how to prepare for the changing landscape through this comprehensive guide to virtual people, process, and technology requirements… providing a way to ensure virtual team benefits far outweigh the costs in terms of maximizing resources and ensuring the viability of the global organization. Sheri explains, “I wrote this book specifically because I have seen entire organizations fail to meet global goals and objectives that have resulted in extreme financial losses simply because they failed to effectively leverage global teams. While we help everyone we possibly can, it’s a lot like picking up the proverbial starfish and throwing it back into the ocean when it comes to facilitating successful virtual teams – we can only help so many… my goal is, through Virtual Success, to provide succinct, easy to follow navigation that will guide many, many starfish back into the sea of global business success through leveraging effective virtual teams.”
