Leadership complexity in the formation of virtual teams

M.Comm. / The discipline of management, denoting the concepts of management and leadership, has been deliberated in boundless number of books, magazines and journals over the years. Some views are that there is a distinction between management and leaders, whilst others vehemently argue that there is no difference between the two terms, and use them synonymously. Leadership is the nucleus of all organisations. Moreover, sustained performance, competitive advantage and success, depends both on effective leadership, as well as committed followers.The literature study undertaken discovered writings confirming the distinctions between the terms groups and teams: groups may fall inside or outside the boundaries of an organisation, such as social groups, whereas teams (in their various forms) are generally referred to in the context of "working teams" in an organisation. Teams may be formed from groups, subsequent to their maturity. In many instances, the usage of the terms "groups" and "teams", are also used interchangeably.
