NEW YORK, NY – May 24, 2010 – According to a study released today, 80% of corporate managers work  virtually at least part of the time and 63% are members of global virtual teams. The key factors that impair productivity are: cultural differences, communication styles, time-zone differences, language and a lack of face-to-face contact, according to the Virtual Teams Survey Report 2010 – The Challenges of Working in Virtual Teams, conducted by RW3 CultureWizard, an intercultural training consultancy specializing in online intercultural training for global business managers.

Get the report from ASTD.

MIT created this undergraduate program focused on “people skills” in response to industry pressures to produce engineers who are as skilled at communicating face-to-face as they are at writing complicated computer codes on their own.

A great industry example of why the courses in myLearning are VERY applicable to your job!
