Why are Global Virtual Teams Falling Short of their Potential? - HR in ASIA:
"In today’s complex, global environment, it’s hard to imagine work without interdisciplinary, virtual teams. What is surprising is that half of those teams include members from other cultures, a further indication of how global business is becoming.
According to the 2016 Trends in Global Virtual Teams conducted by RW³ CultureWizard, 1,372 respondents from 80 countries said that 85% of corporate employees serve on such global virtual teams, and almost 20% spend over half of their day interacting with these teams.
According to Charlene Solomon, President of RW3 CultureWizard, “Almost everyone who works in global business is on a virtual team and 85% of them say it is critical to their productivity. These teams confront unique challenges because the lack of face-to-face contact magnifies and intensifies the impact of cultural differences between team members.”"
