||Due to the progress in information and communication technologies, virtual teams have been widespread developed and adopted. People in different time zones and long-distance places can accomplish the same mission together with the help of virtual tools. It thus forces enterprises to review their structures and systems in their organization for accommodating to globalization economic.|
The concepts of accomplishing task via virtual team are spreads widely and rapidly in the business circle. It evoked many researches but most of these focused on the issues of communication among virtual team members or the computer-aided of forming groups, etc. There are few researches relative to virtual teams structure and their performances.
In this study, we try to explore how the structure of virtual team influences their performances and discover whether the operational process affects the performances. The operational process in a virtual team will also be involved with knowledge management activities such as information gathering & dissemination and knowledge sharing. In this thesis, we explore the relationship among the virtual teams’ structure, operational process, performances and knowledge sharing.
The observation groups are 10 virtual teams from a class of Cyber University of NSYSU (http://cu.nsysu.edu.tw). Survey and content analysis research method were adopted to develop and analysis the datum collection and analysis. The finding of this study has proposed an integrated model, which was constructed by the concepts of virtual team’s structure, team process, performances and knowledge sharing. This model may offer a concept as a reference for further research of virtual teams.
