Issues for distributed teams

The following survey aims to establish the level of knowledge and experience of virtual teams and their supporting tool-technology combinations among the survey group. The survey is an adaptation of the one carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit in the report "Managing virtual teams Taking a more strategic approach" in 2009.

  • What are the primary challenges of managing a virtual team?
  • What are most important for creating a successful virtual team?
  • What device-and-tool combinations do you regularly use to communicate and collaborate with your virtual team?
  • How often do members of your virtual team meet face-to-face?
  • Which of the following best represents the amount of time you spend working within virtual team(s), as opposed to local/physical teams?
