General Information

Length and Learning Modes: In-person classes – 2 days / Virtual (Live online) – 4 sessions
Overview:

In our mobile, global world, nearly every team is virtual to some extent. Creating an effective team when collocated is challenging enough. When the team spends little or no time together in the same space and time, getting team members to identify with the team requires approaches unique to a virtual environment. Keeping virtual team members engaged once the team has formed also makes demands on a team leader that are more time-consuming, and often less comfortable, than when the team is working face-to-face. Getting things done in today’s workplace takes tools, skills, and strategies that work across space and time.

Participants in this course will develop skills and learn techniques to work effectively with teams in which team members have little or no face-to-face communication. It covers all aspects of working virtually, from recognizing types of virtual workers and teams, to working with cultural and language differences, to handling conflict. Workshops with special emphasis on facilitating and eliciting requirements will provide students with opportunities to utilize the best practices for preparing a team to work effectively in a virtual environment, as well as tactics for keeping virtual team members connected to each other and committed to the project and organizational goals.
