global virtual teams, innovation, creativity, team dynamics, brainstorming
The Startup Grind Inc. Global Community Team was studied to show how creativity and innovation occur in a global virtual team. Innovation occurred by choosing team members who were committed to a creative team environment. Team creativity online was strengthened by providing opportunities for the global virtual team to meet in person. Alternative brainstorming methods outside the scheduled team meetings also added to the overall innovation of the team. Flexibility with the virtual office and meetings provided a platform for the team to think outside the box. Team members achieved a unity of ideas as they used innovation and creativity to address large and small challenges as a global virtual team. Connectivity and other challenges of working remotely can be effectively managed to foster best creativity practices in a global virtual team
