Identify global sources of conflict Elaborate on relevant global management conflict resolution issues Increasing 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
