If we work together virtually, which competencies do become particularly important?
In this area of research, we investigate the personal requirements of successful teamwork, with a particular focus on virtual teamwork (i.e., teamwork that is mostly conducted over digital media). To date, systematic requirement analyses as well as detailed insights as to which form of virtual teamwork will require which team member characteristics. To this end, our research not only focuses on systematic comparisons of virtual and traditional teams, but also on dimensions of virtuality as moderators of the contingency between team member characteristic and virtual team performance
