Building and Managing Virtual teams is a special skill set that is not included in your PMP or CAPM certification. Building and managing virtual teams requires special attention to specific topics such as language, location, time zones, technology, etc.
Are you currently struggling to work within a virtual team environment? Has your employer put you in charge of managing a virtual project team—or possibly asked you to assemble one for an upcoming initiative? When it comes to things like motivation, background, and skill level, dealing with project teams that are located in the same building is difficult on its own. But adding different time zones, cultures and communication styles into the mix can make building and managing virtual teams one of the most challenging tasks in project management.
During this 16-hour “Building and Managing Virtual Teams” online course, project managers will begin with a review of the challenges and advantages involved with working virtually, including a discussion of the impact of culture. The process of creating a virtual project team is also covered in detail, along with the various steps and tools involved with getting started. And the course concludes with a comprehensive overview of managing a virtual team—breaking down topics like building trust, achieving team cohesion, technology considerations, and project communication.
In this course, students will have access to:
- 10-section interactive tutorial
- 50+ learning-based exercises
- A course blog for sharing ideas with other students
- Creation of a virtual teams ‘Action Plan’
- End-of-lesson quizzes
