Advances in e-collaboration book.
Virtual team leadership and collaborative engineering bring teams, product engineering, and processes into the 21st century through the use of e-collaboration technologies. These powerful tools accomplish work efficiently and effectively, whether communication takes place only through e-collaboration technologies or in combination with face-to-face interaction. This book addresses a range of e-collaboration topics, with emphasis on two particularly challenging ones: virtual team leadership and collaborative engineering. With contributing authors among the most accomplished e-collaboration, virtual team leadership, and collaborative engineering researchers in the world today, it presents a blend of conceptual, theoretical, and applied chapters creating a publication that will serve both academics and practitioners.
