The original edition of Mastering Virtual Teams offered a first–of–its–kind tool kit for leaders and members of virtual teams. Now, this revised and expanded second edition includes a CD–ROM packed with useful resources that allow virtual teams to access and use the book′s many checklists, assessments, and other practical tools quickly and easily. The authors provide updated guidelines, strategies, and best practices for working cross–culturally and cross–functionally, across time and distance, to see a project through. The useful tools, exercises, and real–life examples show how anyone can master the unique dynamics of virtual team participation in an environment where the old rules no longer apply.

Office face-time may always play a critical role in certain corporate settings, but technology and globalisation have combined to thrust "virtual meetings" into an increasingly important place on today's overall business stage. With once-rigid boundaries of time, geography and even organisation now rapidly disappearing, members of almost any workplace team can communicate and collaborate regardless of physical location. How do the most effective do it? Deborah L. Duarte, assistant professor at George Washington University, and Nancy Tennant Snyder, chief learning officer for Whirlpool Corporation, outline suggestions applicable to large and small organisations alike in Mastering Virtual Teams. Designed for those who work in- -as well as lead--such teams, it is divided into sections that focus on their unique inherent complexities, their creation and their operation. Real-life examples and the authors' experienced observations are complemented by an abundance of helpful checklists and practical exercises. --Howard Rothman, Amazon.comReview:
