1. Why You Need More Than Great Tools To Make Online Collaboration Profitable

Virtual Teams - a new paradigm from nature

Over the last ten years organisational teams have become much more distributed and complex. Despite the number of technologies available to assist team and group working it is still exceptionally difficult to manage such teams.
