Identify global sources of conflict Elaborate on relevant global management conflict resolution issuesIncreasing globalization and advances in communication technology have fueled the emergence of global virtual teams (GVT). There is much potential for conflict in GVT as members work across cultural, geographical, and time boundaries.GVT offer several benefits of access to expertise, round-the-clock service to customers, fast response to global market demands, and saving of travel costs. However, team diversity and space-time dispersion in GVT may pose challenges and conflicts to effective teamwork. While team diversity is celebrated for stimulating creativity and allowing a variety of skills to be brought to bear on problems at hand, it may also reduce team cohesion and increase conflict. Conflict in GVT may be exacerbated by communication delays, time zone differences, and lack of face-to-face contact due to space-time dispersion. These factors may hinder development of understanding and relationships among members of GVT. If poorly managed, conflict can lead to ineffective teamwork and negative outcomes.
