Abstract—Virtual teams greatly depend on various information and communication technologies that support different aspects of teams’ operation. Therefore, managing projects involving virtual teams requires specific tool and technology supported approach. Currently a number of project management methodologies exist, but none of them is entirely suitable for managing projects in virtual team environments. In this paper, a methodological framework suitable for management of projects involving virtual teams is proposed.Project life cycle adequate for virtual project teams is elaborated and effectiveness of the proposed framework is verified on a real-world project.
Index Terms—Framework, methodology, project management, project processes, virtual team.
