Virtual management, brought about by the rise of the internet, globalization, outsourcing, telecommuting and virtual teams, is management of frequently widely dispersed groups and individuals with rarely, if ever, meeting them face to face. In 1995 when leaving the global outsourcing company we found out that it is important to add outside expertise to explore the unfamiliar problems. How could we transform innovations, ideas and insights quicker to actionable strategies. Future business owners need to create a stronger corporate culture that uses the competence and technology in a smarter way.
Virtual Management is a way to use experiences from the sports world, culture industry, HR, health, technology experts e.g to define quick future strategies that is easy to execute, measure and follow up.
Focus on result
One of our first missions was to double the sales of each sales person within 24 months with keeping the overall overhead at the same level per actual sale. We managed that mostly because of focusing on culture that encouraged the individual initiative and competence. At the same time we introduced a new technical platform with powerful tools for increase product offerings, extended search functions, integrated customer service and create stronger relationships with the loyal customer.
As an external advisor it was very important to create a flexible structure that could deliver management support at any time and any place. We could say that we delivered the virtual manager as an inspirational lecturer, project manager, facilitator, coach, mentor, private trainer and much more. In some other projects we have succeeded in finding new customer, partners, suppliers in unfamiliar areas or in the unexpected meeting zone.
