In the article “Virtual Teams, a Necessary Evil or a Blessing in Disguise” an estimate of 2.5 billion text messages and 210 billion e-mails were sent, of which many were sent by members of global organizations, who may have been working as part of virtual teams.


Since I started speaking on meeting management, someone always brings up virtual meetings.  Although I wrote a little on net meetings and the differences between video and tele-conferencing, I did not go into detail about the “how-to” since there are lots of tools and vendors to choose from.  Even though my RA!RA! book covers some of it, I have been toying with the idea of doing an article on virtual meeting etiquette since more patience and a few other considerations for this method are necessary than the face-to-face meeting. Then I found and read a book on virtual teams which covers some of what I wanted to write about.  So instead of an article, I wrote a series of blog posts.  The blog posts are listed below so that you can read whichever best suits you need.  All posts are linked, so if you want to read them all, you do not have to come back to this newsletter issue to click on the next one.
