3 Common Mistakes In Managing Virtual Teams
Virtual Teams are everywhere now – from home office workers to workers in offices in multiple locations and teams embedded in large global corporations.
According to Forrester Research 81% of Teams are distributed across multiple locations.
Often when a Projects team is dispersed they suffer delays and sometimes complete failure. International investments are put at Risk due to the intercultural issues or simply because the team members feel isolated and unmotivated.

We will be working more virtually in the future
Working on several continents is today a common process for many of the large organisations. Virtual teams in which people do not work side by side are of fundamental importance to large corporations. According to many experts, this is the future of work organization.
How can the disadvantage of geographical distance be turned to advantage? We have discussed this subject with Peter Ivanov, a manager with over 20 years international business experience who has lead many virtual teams in Eastern and Western Europe, Asia and Africa. He implemented the Virtual Power Teams management method with teams that were stationed in different continents. His concept, which consists of 10 elementary pillars, the “10 Big Rocks”, has been successfully applied in a number of internationally active organisations as well as in both academic and NGO sectors.Read More...

Virtual Power Teams in “Manager” Magazin
Virtual Power Teams – Bulgarian invention that unites teams in different locations
Those people work in different time zones and geographical locations but they have to comply every day with common processes, drive innovation and jointly overcome various challenges.
What would happen if there was a method that could ensure that these people could get to know each other and work as closely as if they spent their daily lunch breaks together?
Why a Virtual Team needs a Coach?
We have all seen that in sports the Team coach can make a huge difference.
The question is what difference can a Virtual Team Coach make?
A Virtual Team is a Team of individuals located in different places – cities, countries or even continents but who share a common goal. The Virtual Team may be aBusiness Team – for example a large international Project Team or a Department spread across several countries. It could be a group of scientists doing Research in a specific area – collaborating and building on each other ideas. It can also be a Team in the Education sphere. We have more and more Universities offering various Distance learning – using open on-line courses to bring together thousands of students into a Virtual Team. Very often the Team members are spread across continents, time zones and cultures.
In an interview for ITCE, Peter Ivanov shares useful practices for virtual teams management.
Number one challenge is the inability for informal face-to-face conversation. If people have never met and established their relationship on a human level it is far less productive to work as a team being separated by continents and time zones.Read More...
