Chapter Event - Effects of Organizational Support on Components of Virtual Project Teams


Drouin Nathalie 

Effects of Organizational Support on Components of Virtual Project Teams

Virtual project teams are increasingly widespread across organisations throughout the public and private sectors. However,  this approach increases the management and relationship challenges for organisations, project managers and team members.

This presentation focuses on how two international high-tech companies established support structures for their virtual project teams and the impact this had. The research findings from this will enable managemen and project managers to better understand the importance and effects of how an organisation can support its virtual teams to enhance their performance.
