Abstract and Keywords

Given the proliferation of technology developments and the continued use of teams within organizations, it is not surprising to see an increasing use of virtual teams. In response, researchers are more closely examining factors that may affect virtual team performance. There have been several reviews that do a thorough job of providing the current state of the virtual team literature, as well as providing directions for future research in this area. However, within the current chapter, we leverage a framework from the talent-management literature to assess whether certain talent-management-related topics have been adequately considered within the virtual team literature. Within each section of the framework leveraged here, we outline what the virtual team research has discussed, as well as where future opportunities exist. Our contention is that by integrating thoughts from the talent-management literature, additional insights and gaps can be identified within the virtual team literature.

Keywords: virtual teams, talent management, leadership, composition, training/development, retention, talent
