Virtual Teamwork Levels the Playing Field

For many businesses the need for virtual teamwork through their organization has increased exponentially over the past decade.

The development of the Internet and the technologies to harness it's power opens up opportunities for expansion into new global markets, and the ability for your team to work "virtually."

This virtual work can be done from anywhere with cellular service, or an Internet connection.

Leveling the Playing Field

This newfound freedom and ability to compete benefits many small businesses. Utilizing technology cuts many expenses i.e. decreased travel, rehiring, training, fluid project management, and the ability to outsource work effectively and inexpensively.

Working virtually comes with it's drawbacks as well:

  • Increased competition in competitive markets
  • Virtual teamwork makes "face-to-face" management difficult
  • Some people don't like the sense of "being alone"
  • Technology Gaps
  • Unexpected communication and language barriers

Effective remote teamwork depends on partners, employees, vendors, and a team you can trust. After all, if you send your employee to Las Vegas to attend and represent your company at a tradeshow, you want the piece of mind that your presenting the best image.

Virtual Teamwork Tools

Companies developed virtual tools  rapidly over the last years; everything from virtual online conference rooms to project management software.

Used wisely these tools help facilitate effective collaboration throughout your entire organization, regardless of your location. You can make presentations to prospective clients, share important data quickly and securely, train new team members, and hold online business meetings from all corners of the globe.

The only limitations are having a secure Internet connection and the knowledge to use the programs.

But many of the virtual tools are very intuitive. This makes the "learning curve" very manageable. Also many of the tools are "web-based" meaning the applications and your data exist online, rather than taking up space on your hard drive.
