New technologies have led to a new information and knowledgebased economy. In this context, technology has changed the work environment, where organisations have become increasingly complex and competitive. Namely, the technologically induced a “virtual” environment has resulted in the adoption of new organisational structures and work skills and practices. On the one hand, the workplace increasingly requires employee to work in teams, collaborating across companies, communities, and continents. These changes and the new organisational structures have also made an impact on role of managers and their management styles, on the other hand. In line with this, the book is a very rich collection of thinking and empirical research findings on the subject. The literature review suggests researchers should approach the book topic through the lens of knowledge, motivation, and communication skills. The chapters of the book cover the topics as: communication, motivation, organisational structure, workplace behaviors, virtual teams, organisational culture and diversity, organisational change and learning organisation, and more. Our central finding is that, in the context of our new model dedicated to virtual teams and skills competencies measurement that a competent virtual team can be assembled. The study also includes several case studies that contribute to the quality of this publication. Therefore it deserves serious consideration by anyone interested in the future of organisations in terms of digitalization and fast changes in business environment. Furthermore, for the organisational theorists, managers, students and others, this book can serve as a reference source.
