The Global Virtual Team (GVT)
Along with increasing internationalization of companies, the challenges of leading global teams have been increasing for years as well. As a result leadership is more and more taking place virtually. A side note: “virtual“ actually is not a suitable term, since it means artificial, fake. More appropriate would be to speak of “comprehensively across sites“. Nevertheless - communication takes place via phone or video conference, via e-mail or diverse other, often company-internal, chat functions or applications such as “WhatsApp“.
