Abstract:
    




The literature related to virtual R&D teams
reveals a lack of depth in the definitions (Ale Ebrahim et al., 2010).
Although virtual teamwork is a current topic in the literature
concerning global organizations, it is problematic to define the meaning
of 'virtual teams' across multiple institutional contexts (Chudoba et
al., 2005). The concept of a "team" is described as a small number of
people with complementary skills who are equally committed to a common
purpose, goal, and working approach for which they hold themselves
mutually accountable (Zenun et al., 2007). It is worth mentioning that
virtual teams (VTs) are often formed to overcome geographical or
temporal separations (Cascio and Shurygailo, 2003). VTs work across
boundaries of time and space using modern computer-driven technologies
(Ebrahim et al., 2010). The term "VTs" is used to cover a wide range of
activities and forms of technology-supported working (Anderson et al.,
2007).
