Virtual research and development (R&D) teams in SMEs can offer a solution to speed up time-to-market of new product development (NPD).
However, factors that affect the effectiveness of virtual teams for NPD are still not adequately verified.
This paper presents the correlations between virtual R&D team constructs and virtual team effectiveness by developing a “Virtual Research and Development Team” (ViR&DT) model.
The items, which may influence the effectiveness of virtual teams, are taken from the literature.
Through an online survey and by application of structural equation modeling (SEM) technique, the proposed model (ViR&DT) has been tested. The results suggest that the process construct is strongly correlated to the effectiveness of virtual teams. Therefore, NPD managers in virtual R&D teams should concentrate on the process of new product development rather than simply equipping the teams...
