Free Webinar "Leading Virtual Teams with the NO LIMITS Approach"

April 30 ⋅ 11:00 am 

The Internet and the practice of outsourcing work have been the main ingredients for the use of virtual distributed teams. No longer can a project team always be co-located in order to improve expediting a project! After years of experience with virtual groups and teams, Dr. Moylan will demonstrate a range of positive techniques and tools to keep a virtual team on track, on schedule and on budget. The techniques shown will range from the use enterprise-wide impact tools to subtle interpersonal strategies that a project manager may use to have a successful virtual and/or distributed team project.

To reinforce these concepts for presentation participants the authors will be using a N.O. L.I.M.I.T.S. approach to the material which includes:

· Nurturing: Bringing team members up to speed, Encouraging Excellence

· Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Keeping team members engaged, Stopping the Second-Class Status of a Virtual Project

· Leadership: Sharing Responsibility, Keeping Control

· Interests: Understanding the Needs of the Team Members, Aligning Expertise with the Project

· Mind Reading: Laying Out Everything Ahead of Time, Brainstorming to Brainstorm

· Individualized Recognition & Attention: Pay Close Attention to Team Members Actions, Timeliness

· Tools: Internet Sites, Intranet Sites, Enterprise / Commercial, Free/Low Cost

· Subject Matter Experts: Their Role, Their Value

Leading virtual teams is a very important skill for the modern project manager to master, a scenario and role that all EMU students will very likely encounter. In today’s COVID-19 charged environment, everyone is now in the virtual team setting and can benefit from taking a NO LIMITS approach.
