Everything You Need to Successfully Manage a Virtual Team
Virtual teams (groups of individuals who work across time, space and organizational boundaries) can possibly thrive in this day and age of advance communication technology, but can also be quite a huge challenge for the one who leads it.
Creating a corporate culture remotely can be achieved by setting goals and strategies that can be implemented by the team later on. Keeping everyone aligned in processes, tools, and mindsets is the best step towards success.
