According to Kuruppuarachchi (2009), what benefits and problems arise as a consequence of the creation of virtual team? Identify five each. Based on this, explain how to make the transition from a more traditional team structure to the more distributed team structure?

  • ·         Speed up product development and project management.
  • ·         Flexibility in resource allocations and working scheduling.
  • ·         Flexibility in working hours for employees.
  • ·         Financial gains through improve productivity, reduced cos, reduce travel time, etc.
  • ·         Skilled, qualified, and talented workforce is possible regardless of the distance.

  • ·         Additional costs for setting up remote offices.
  • ·         Too many members are possible in a team.
  • ·         Quality control is difficult.
  • ·         Ineffective communication in the absence of face-to-face communication.
  • ·         Lack of permanent reports or reports are not available centrally.
I think it is a good idea to move forward to distributed teams, because the benefits are more significant than the problems, I think the biggest problem would be the communication, so an enterprise should create a good communication system with their employees when going into this kind of team.
This team well used can bring a lot of benefits to the enterprise, so it is important to be well prepared to take advantage of it.
