Summary/Abstract: This paper studies the types of management teams and identifies the essential characteristics of organizational models applied in management practice: work group – team – self-managed work team and virtual team. The focus is put on virtual teams. The key prerequisites, regularities and processes associated with the design and functioning of highly effective virtual teams are analyzed. The indicators of team effectiveness are specified and the factors influencing immediate results are analyzed. The multilateral relationships in the integrative models most cited in the last 20 years are explored not only at the input, but in the process of interaction, as well as the ways to achieve balance and good teamwork between team members. The aim is to find a common theoretical and methodological basis that brings together the fundamental models of virtual team effectiveness.
