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.
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
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
