Author(s): Birgit Großer, Ulrike Baumöl. Journal: International Journal of Information Systems and Project Management. Year: 2017. Link: https://www.sciencesphere.org/ijispm/archive/ijispm-050402.pdf Article Summary (250-300 words): The article emphasizes the influence of technology in the workplace, especially flexibility and mobility, which are considered common megatrends. The impact of technology on employees has resulted in cultural transformation, including how they live and work. Großer & Baumöl (2017) argue that organizations have embraced the concept of virtual teams to introduce technological solutions that match employees' culture and their everyday lives. Technological changes have also benefited employers who are in a position to attract high qualified talents due to the new ways of recruiting and hiring. Although virtual teams interact through technology and the members are geographically dispersed, they must stay committed to achieve their mutual goals while enjoying flexibility in locations and working hours. The article states that organizations emphasize virtual teams because they help them stay competitive in the labor market, hence achieving employee retention. Integrating virtual teams causes structural and processes changes, which has significant benefits to the organization, including utilizing simple hierarchies, embracing employees' self-management, developing an innovative culture, and saving on HR, travel, and real-estate costs. However, numerous factors affect these virtual teams' performance and success, which organizations must emphasize to reap these benefits to the maximum, including technology, communication, distance, goal clarity, and management. Saudi Arabia significantly rely on virtual teams due to their efficiency where companies make decisions easily and quickly in short meetings. The companies in Saudi Arabia leverage on the strong communication, flexibility, and diversity guaranteed while utilizing virtual teams. In conclusion, although organizations have numerous potential benefits from deploying virtual teams in their operations, they require proper planning by introducing a framework that will guide the virtual teams' integration into the existing organizational structures and processes. Additionally, investing in ICT is essential in successfully deploying and supporting virtual teamwork in both work and social-related processes. Reference (APA): Großer, B., & Baumöl, U. (2017).
