ABSTRACT
The article looks at the management challenges thrown up by homeworking and the shift to a global economy. Managing a remote or virtual team is a challenge that managers are increasingly likely to face. But it calls for an adjustment of traditional management practices. Managers need to get the hang of leading teams across distance and time zones, and must be aware of technology and multicultural sensitivities.
