Virtual project teams : an emerging paradigm

Abstract: The rapidly developing technological paradigm of networked computing is offering new opportunities for increasing productivity in a wide range of business environments which include planning and design. It is becoming clear, however, that application of new technology, in the absence of organisational restructuring or ‘re-engineering’ may not deliver the expected benefits. In this paper we explore examples where new communications and information technologies have been used to support the creation of virtual project teams or virtual offices where traditional forms of activity are replaced by new (electronic) modes of operation. It represents but one facet of the revolutionary changes washing over contemporary society where there are continuous challenges to what is technologically possible, economically feasible and organisationally desirable.
