The impact of Product Lifecycle Management on virtual team creation: a concept change model for heightened productivity
: This paper addresses issues related to the implementation of product lifecycle management (PLM) in support of cross-cultural virtual teams (CCVT). The cross-cultural virtual team model (CCVTM) presented in this paper will educate those currently involved in PLM operations as to: a) how successful cross-cultural virtual teams can be created, and b) how PLM and CCVT serve to strengthen and support each other. The methodology for creating the CCVTM began with gaining an understanding of different cultures by studying the findings of two research projects: the Geert Hofstede model and Project GLOBE. It then continued by analyzing the issues involved with the creation of virtual teams by studying current research and literature. These findings were then combined so that cross-cultural factors are directly considered in the construction of virtual teams.
