By David R Robins
According research done by Forrester, up to 68% of all projects finish late or fail totally. The problem is getting worse. Due to globalization many teams are not located in one location and the team’s performance suffers due to the lack of collaboration & communication. Today, there are three type of teams working on projects in small to large companies.
- Traditional teams– All team members are in the same physical location. This model is happening less often these days.
Distributed team– All team members work remotely and rarely meet each other. This is seen more in web design, graphic art and software engineering disciplines than other fields
Mixed teams– A combination of the above two. Like teams which meet 1 day of the week in one location and the rest of the week work remotely, or use new technology to create a virtual office for the team.
