    Virtual teams need more than technology—they need excellent management and interpersonal savvy.

The Model teaches virtual managers how to leverage the professional strengths of individual team members to maximize performance, encourage collaboration, and increase productivity. Each Essential is supported by research, case study analyses, leader interviews, and relevant firsthand experience.

    7 Essentials for Managing Virtual Teams is a must-read for virtual team managers who wish to inspire team members to realize their full potential and contribute in meaningful ways—even from afar.
