Abstract

In today’s global economy, the ability to work virtually is paramount, due to organizations being increasingly distributed, with remote members and locations. Communication techniques in these organizations are no longer the same as they were when all members were located in the same building. Traditional managerial communication techniques do not apply to distributed teams, where in-person meetings may occur but are limited. Further, even employees who are geographically co-located need to communicate and plan using virtual means. Since the use of collaborative tools is emerging as a desired skill set, a collection of Web 2.0 software applications including Yammer Enterprise Social Network were employed specifically to encourage collaboration in an online graduate-level project management course. Additionally, Yammer was utilized as a live case study of online collaboration throughout the course.
