Tiivistelmä:
Objective of the Study:




Global virtual team has become a commonplace in organizational structure
and been widely used in entrepreneurial teams, such as born globals.
Communication is recognized as a critical factor and challenge in GVT,
nevertheless, researchers have merely touched the field of communication
in global entrepreneurial virtual team. This study aimed to fill this
research gap and found out what can global entrepreneurial teams do to
achieve effective communication.




Methodology and the Theoretical Framework:




As very little literature existed about entrepreneurial GVT
communication, this study conducted a systematic literature review on
GVT communication in general and applied the synthesized findings to
entrepreneurial team literature.




Findings and Conclusions:




The research showed that while communication plays a vital role in GVT
functioning, it also specifically plays as a team performance factor, a
human resource practice, a leadership practice, a trust building factor,
a team member's boundary management strategy, an information delivery
tool, a knowledge sharing channel and a team process facilitator.
Factors that affect communication in entrepreneurial GVT include
leadership, culture, technology, trust, language, communication
behavior, communication channel, communication frequency/timing,
training, interpersonal relations, interaction, task interdependence,
communication wastes identification, degree of virtuality, coordination
and awareness. Some factors depend on each other and communication is
always a value that plays between these variables. To achieve effective
communication in entrepreneurial GVT, the practitioners should address
effective leadership practices.
