A set of techniques and tools used primarily to promote the exchange and dissemination of tacit knowledge. Virtual teams are formed by matching people to tasks. Adjustment is done by associating knowledge, competence and experience with the requirements of emerging tasks and projects to be implemented.

Virtuality of teams manifests itself in the fact that using advanced communication technologies, a team of people scattered in different places of the globe can work together without direct physical contact. Without modern communication technology: the Internet, video conferencing, multimedia messages, virtual teams would not be possible.

In issues related to knowledge management virtual teams favor the sharing of knowledge, as well as the organization of knowledge and the process of organizational learning.

They allow for involvement in the strategic management of a wider group of specialists from different countries, allowing for better matching of strategy to local conditions.
