virtual manager

A manager who oversees project teams that include staff workers and who are spread across the globe. Instead of cajoling these e-collar workers into a weekend retreat to brainstorm or build morale, virtual managers must instill a sense of mission and team spirit in people who may never meet F2F. It is important for netcentric companies to have competent virtual managers because the ability to quickly assemble a virtual staff around a project idea is a competitive advantage in an economy with shrinking product cycles.
