While participating on a virtual team, a team member has his or her own set of challenges, and managing the virtual team involves some additional responsibilities. A people manager or program manager is expected to lead, be an example for the rest of the team, and help pull the members together to accomplish something collectively that they could not accomplish alone. Time, budget, and scope are the three main attributes of a program that can be documented, managed, and measured. Operating principles and culture are the soft skills that can contribute to the success or failure of the program or project on which a team is working.
