Omar Moeen Aldin Malik


In an era dominated by globalization and rapid technological advancements, it has become imperative to focus on optimal strategies to achieve organizational goals and provide a conducive environment for employees. Unfortunately, some fail to recognize that what was once considered a luxury has now become an essential necessity for success and sustainability. Neglecting these factors can have serious consequences. Virtual teams play a crucial role in the success of many companies as they enter the virtual world either partially or entirely. Their effectiveness relies on adhering to necessary standards and guidelines. Although several references have addressed this topic, challenges continue to arise over time. Remote work is the future of work, and it is essential to acquire the skills and readiness required for it. This research adopts a descriptive-analytical approach, drawing upon theoretical aspects from both Arabic and foreign studies. It applies SWOT analysis to three case studies to examine strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The findings emphasize that enhancing trust, technical skills, communication, and leaders' attention to employees are key factors for the success of virtual teams. Inadequate social environments and insufficient training in modern technologies can lead to setbacks for organizations. The recommendations include fostering communication and supporting mental well-being, investing in robust technological infrastructure, and selecting leaders with the necessary skills to ensure the success of virtual teams.
