What are Global Teams?

The way we work is changing fast. As the economy globalizes and workplaces virtualize, global teams, virtual teams are on the rise and here to stay. Working with a varied set of talents and a bunch of expert brains is the best idea. The technological advancement has enabled global team working as well. Working with a team that has members from across the globe is a big opportunity as well as a responsibility. 

To succeed in the global economy, more and more companies are relying on a culturally dispersed workforce. They build teams that offer the best functional expertise from around the world, combined with deep, local knowledge of the most promising markets. They draw on the benefits of international diversity, bringing together people from many cultures with varied work experiences and different perspectives on strategic and organizational challenges. All this helps multinational companies compete in the current business environment.

Challenges of Global team

39 time zones. 194 countries. This is the new world of remote work, and it’s a world of opportunity. The benefits of tapping into a global talent pool and reaching customers around the world are tremendous, but coordinating remote, global teams also poses a new set of challenges. 

Managers who lead global teams are up against stiff challenges. Creating successful workgroups is hard enough when everyone is local and people share the same office space. But when team members come from different countries and functional backgrounds and are working in different locations, communication can rapidly deteriorate, misunderstanding can ensue, and cooperation can degenerate into distrust. There are four fundamental functions a global team needs: scheduling, editing, communicating, and coordinating. . Some of their major challenges include a lack of face-to-face interactions between teammates, differences in time-zones, low level of bond and trust, poor team communication, inadequate tools, or the language barrier.
