Abstract

The lessons learned from four years of experience with virtual teams and a three year case study with the US Navy at sea on board the USS Coronado are presented. Field action research is used to study the domain of distributed group support systems (GSS) facilitation and participation. Distributed teams worked together using GSS tools from their work desktops, homes or where every they found themselves to solve complex problem and complete work together that they could not do without distributed GSS technology and facilitation. The results of the research have lead to valuable lessons learned and a set of guidelines for effective distributed facilitation and participation.
