We wanted to get a perspective on the challenges of virtual teams from people who prefer working face to face rather than in a virtual setting. Greg Todd has had roles as a manager and an engineer on virtual teams. Joe Gerardi moved from Georgia to California to manage a team based on the West Coast. Joe comments in general about virtual teams as well as the challenges around meetings and people management. He also shares his views on how culture and tools can act as an enabler or barrier to the success of virtual teams. He considers himself about three-fourths of the way into the tolerate stage of the virtual team maturity curve.
