PI: As part of a highly structured communication would I apply typically a weekly conference call (audio or better video), in which the team a rather informal update and a brief Exchange on current issues are. Once per month, presents his or her progress based on one then any formal, agreed report templates in such a virtual conference. There are also sanctions within virtual teams? PI: Good feedback is the key here. If something goes wrong, is the line or a team member immediately with that or the one apart. Differently than in presence talks of course also other forms of feedback of virtuality must be rolled, to ensure that only constructive feedback will be given. The worst would be to isolate a team member, I mean the worst for him and the team that would lose a productive resource.
