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.
