Patrick Lencioni is the author of several best selling business management books including "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" and "Death By Meeting".
In his February 2009 e-newsletter Lencioni outlines 3 mistakes a Virtual Team needs to avoid if it is to be successful:
- MISTAKE # 1: Underestimating the challenges of being dispersed.
- MISTAKE # 2: Wasting the precious time you (the Virtual Team) do spend together.
- MISTAKE # 3: Failing to master the conference call (one of the most loathed and underestimated of all corporate activities)
