2  Virtual teams are geographically dispersed work teams, whose members are interdependent and share responsibilities for outcomes. The team members must collectively manage their relationships across organizational and geographical boundaries. They must also be able to expertly communicate through technological means with little or no face-to-face interactions.  Virtual team members must have a shared understanding of tasks, and be willing to develop mutual skills for bridging the gap between varied disciplines and backgrounds. Integrating various parts of organizational knowledge and establishing trust in the group’s ability to deliver value and develop substantive results, the virtual team must establish the level of risk each member is willing to take to obtain the needed results.  Virtual team members must be self-motivated and the team must regulate its members, spanning possible diverse cultural differences.  By creating a virtual meeting space and exploring each member’s competencies and weaknesses, a virtual group can maximize the outcome of its work.  The key ingredients for success are the members themselves, who must be adept and comfortable with communication technology, self-directed, have good interpersonal skills, be competent in the knowledge area each is expected to work in, and be trustworthy.  Virtual teams are geographically dispersed work teams, whose members are interdependent and share responsibilities for outcomes.
