Our working habits are changing. Advances in communications technology mean that more and more organizations are expanding their horizons. It's never been easier for companies to operate across international borders, and many professionals are taking advantage of technology to work from home. As a result, there has been enormous growth in the number of organizations relying on virtual teams to get their jobs or projects done.

Changes in working patterns and advances in technology mean that more organizations are embracing the creation of virtual teams.They offer considerable advantages but can also present some challenges.
