We believe in the concept of “Virtual Team”. A virtual team (also known as a geographically dispersed team, distributed team or remote team) usually refers to a group of individuals who work together from different geographic locations and rely on communication technology such as email, FAX, and video or voice conferencing services in order to collaborate. The term can also refer to groups or teams that work together asynchronously or across organizational levels.
Powell, Piccoli and Ives (2004) define virtual teams as:
“groups of geographically, organizationally and/or time dispersed workers brought together by information and telecommunication technologies to accomplish one or more organizational tasks.”
According to Ale Ebrahim et. al. (2009), virtual teams can also be defined as:
“small temporary groups of geographically, organizationally and/or time dispersed knowledge workers who coordinate their work predominantly with electronic information and communication technologies in order to accomplish one or more organization tasks.”
