Advance Praise for Virtual Teams

“… very well-written, clearly bringing forth the early essence of what I think is

the most important foreseeable potential of the erupting digital technology— i.e., enabling rapid evolution of organizational forms representing much-improved species of social organisms. Read it; I think human survival depends upon this.”

—Douglas Engelbart, Director of the Bootstrap Institute

“Virtual Teams emphasizes the practical how-to’s of interpersonal bonding that allow industry/academic partnerships to utilize the technology of the network to excel as virtual teams.”

—Bill Hanson, Industry Co-Director, MIT’s Leaders for Manufacturing Program “Lipnack and Stamps have been thinking about teams and networks longer and writing about them more than most. For those who want to lead the movement, catch up with it, or simply know where it is going, their books are packed with useful information and interesting stories.”

—Dee W Hock, Founder and Chairman Emeritus, VISA

“This book provides a long overdue perspective on how to apply the discipline of real teams in the fast moving, increasingly dispersed information age of the future.”

—Jon R. Katzenbach, Co-Author of The Wisdom of Teams

—Jim Lynch, Director, Corporate Quality, Sun Microsystems, Inc.

“Lipnack and Stamps have written an important handbook for the 21st century corporation. It is a practical guide for using the new tools of networking technology to leverage the productivity, efficiency, and genius of teams. For virtual teams, time and space constraints vanish without its members sacri-ficing their individual contribution, enthusiasm, and interest. Here you will read about the dynamic organizations of the future.”

—Regis McKenna, The McKenna Group, Author of Relationship Marketing “This book fills a big gap in what’s available to help teams. Jessica and Jeffrey go beyond the theory on networking people and teams to actual how-to and tools to get the job done. When you are working on multiple distributed


proj-“Virtual Teams is chockful of striking examples of how technology and innovative people are reshaping the way companies compete globally.” —Lars Nyberg, Chairman & CEO, NCR Corporation

“Lipnack and Stamps have done it again. Having shown the world long before

it became obvious how to use networks of smaller independent companies to outperform bureaucratic giants, they now show us how and when to use virtual teams to overcome the barriers of location, time, and organizational separation. Essential lessons for anyone seeking to be effective in the information age.

—Gifford and Elizabeth Pinchot, Authors of The Intelligent Organization and The End of Bureaucracy

“Lipnack and Stamps wrote the original book on networking years ago. While others seem to have recently discovered the possibilities inherent in the con-vergence of new ways of organizing teams and new communication technolo-gies, they have been working at the bleeding edge for decades. If you want to see where organizational communications are going in the future, heed what these pioneers have written today.”

—Howard Rheingold, Author of The Virtual Community and Founder of Electric Mind

“Virtual Teams is the cookbook for the emerging network-based organization. The role models portrayed clearly demonstrate just what can be accomplished when we break down the traditional barriers of space and time. Even already practicing virtual team members will learn new ‘tricks’ from this marvelous compendium, driving their organization towards even more effective ways of working.”

—Harry J. Saal, Smart Valley, Inc.

“Jessica and Jeffrey are right on the mark! I have participated on virtual teams for over a decade with the likes of Adobe Systems, Apple Computer, and Or-acle Corp. And now with Borland International I interact daily with various teams whose participants are in many functional areas located around the world. A lot of these teams are ‘Intra’-Borland, but many are ‘Inter’-Borland in that they include participants from other companies, accounting, and consulting firms.”
