Praise for VIRTUAL TEAM SUCCESS

"There's no school for this yet, but when the first is established, Virtual Team Success: A Practical Guide for Working and Leading from a Distance will certainly be the core curriculum."
—JESSICA LIPNACK AND JEFFREY STAMPS, CEO and co-founders, NetAge

"Virtual Team Success is a must have for anyone managing geographically-dispersed teams. DeRosa and Lepsinger bring experience and credentials to guide us all through the labyrinth of problems that so often derail virtual teams. As our global businesses become increasingly complex, I can't imagine a more timely or better resource."
—JAY MOLDENHAUER-SALAZAR, vice president, talent management, The Gap

"For global teams that want to be top-performing, Virtual Team Success should be their team handbook. It's loaded with tools, checklists, models, and practical recommendations for working and leading from a distance. This is the kind of book virtual teams really need to be successful. I've been waiting for a book like this and look forward to recommending it as a resource that can help improve the performance of our teams!"
—KATHLEEN MCGUIRE, manager organizational development, Bayer Healthcare HR Global Leadership Development

"Virtual teams are intended to make optimal use of expertise spread across the world, but performance excellence is the exception and mediocrity the rule. After extensive and careful study of real teams, DeRosa and Lepsinger have captured essential information, principles of operation, and tools in a highly readable volume that can help thoughtful readers elevate the performance of the teams significantly. The practical focus, collection of techniques and tools, and "how to" tips provide an essential foundation for anyone with virtual team responsibility. The organization of the book centered around challenges, differentiators, and lessons will facilitate finding answers to any problem the team faces. The RAMP model makes it easy to focus on what's important in enabling top performance."
—MIKE BEYERLEIN, professor, Organizational Leadership, Purdue University

From the Inside Flap:

VIRTUAL TEAM SUCCESS

In today's complex organizations it is not uncommon to have as many as 50 percent of employees working on virtual teams. As the "virtual revolution" continues to spread, how can companies ensure that virtual team collaboration is producing the desired results?

Highly practical and easy to navigate, Virtual Team Success leverages the authors' robust global research study and hands-on experience to provide an immediately usable resource for virtual team members and team leaders. This groundbreaking book is a hands-on, practical toolkit filled with down-to-earth examples and insights that can enhance the virtual team experience for everyone involved.

The authors' research study is one of the most comprehensive applied studies ever conducted on virtual teams, and all of the recommendations outlined are based on these findings as well as the authors' years of experience helping virtual teams and virtual team leaders effectively lead and collaborate from a distance. To help organizations and leaders enhance virtual team performance, the book includes:

  • Why Virtual Teams Fail—outlines the four pitfalls that frequently derail virtual teams
  • Profile of High Performing Teams—addresses the characteristics of the most effective virtual teams and what makes them successful
