Target group

You can run Virtual Collaboration in a Global Setting as an internal learning process for any group of employees or managers in your company – for instance, for a specific team, project group or department, or as an open enrolment programme with participants across the organization.

The learning process is relevant for anyone who work in a global context with international colleagues/partners and often facilitate virtual meetings, do online events and/or drive global projects with a distributed team.

Format and process

Virtual Collaboration in a Global Setting is a learning process with 3 or 4 online sessions of 2 hours each, delivered approximately a week apart.

During the dynamic and interactive online sessions, we use exercises, chats, breakout group discussions, and online whiteboards with the core focus of involving all participants and maintaining a high level of engagement. As participants, you'll get to try out a range of different online tools for inspiration.

In between the scheduled sessions, all participants will work together with a learning partner to reflect on the new learnings and do on-the-job exercises. This strengthens the common understanding and builds important relationships.

Bringing your new learning back to your day-to-day work is essential. Throughout the learning process we focus on how new knowledge can be translated into skills:

  • What will you do differently in your global team?
  • Which habits will you change in your online, cross-cultural work – and how?
  • How will you use the new models and tools to support your distance collaboration?

The C3 book ‘Global Perspectives: A Practical Guide to Navigating Across Cultures’ is used throughout the process as a common platform to support the continuous learning.

This is the first time I have tried a course over several weeks, but it worked very well as we had a chance to reflect upon our learnings, you got to know people better and you didn't have to focus for too long.
