The knowledge creating potential of virtual teams (VTs) continues to drive their implementation across organizations. Studies, however, suggest VTs may not sustain the sharing of tacit knowledge so fundamental to innovation. Through review of a wealth of trans-disciplinary research, this publication uniquely demonstrates how VT effectiveness can be supported through leveraging critical socialization processes. Intentionally accessing socialization supports knowledge creation by addressing a primary challenge: how to shape and support team contexts characterized by member trust, collegiality and shared values. Promising results are reviewed from an exploratory study of 51 VTs. Findings overall show a pattern of significant, positive relationships between specific socialization tactics, context variables, and team learning. Notably, evidence indicates a strong positive relationship between context variables and team innovation. Essential reading for VT leaders and researchers alike, reviewed studies reveal key strategies for shaping effective team contexts capable of supporting and sustaining knowledge creation.

The Impact of Culture on Team Efficiency and Leadership is a book designed for managers working with multicultural organisation. This book is also useful for undergraduate/postgraduate degree/diploma students of business management. This book explains how culture affects the behavior of individuals and management of international organisations. Working with multicultural organisation often requires exceptional interpersonal skills. Managers must be aware of the cultural differences and the consequences of this on Team Members' behavior. This book aims at analyzing the challenges Multicultural Teams face and how we can overcome these hurdles and enhance the effectiveness of Multicultural Teams. As the business world is becoming more globalized and teams are more diverse than they used to be in earlier times, team leaders also need to brush up their skills and must look beyond the older leadership traits and theories. They have to adapt the styles which are more suitable for multicultural teams, giving enough importance to issues arising due to cross cultural differences.
The importance and numerous benefits of effective teamwork have already been broadly discussed. A quote like "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is a perfect example. Organizations all over the world have come to adapt their structures to focus more on teams, instead of individual work. However, if so much is already known about teamwork, is there anything left to investigate and improve? This book will give new insights about the extent to which three specific variables, namely music, group mood and interpersonal coordination, can enhance the quality of team performance. Music is known to have the capacity to induce both positive and negative affect among individuals. Interpersonal coordination plays also a vital role in the whole equation. The potential influence of these variables could ultimately lead to the enhancement of team performance. Leaders in organizations have recognized that teamwork and the coordination of knowledge are important for team effectiveness. People have worked together since the dawn of time and yet there is still room for improvement!
