To understand Virtual Project Management (vPM) it is necessary previously to understand the basics of Project Management (PM). vPM could be understood as an enhancement or extension of PM, because it uses the new available telecommunication technologi es. Meanwhile projects take place inside of the same company with workers of this company, vPM take place with
workers which are not in the same company, maybe not even in the same country or continent. This
leads to several interaction problems which could origin the failure of the virtual project if they
are not properly managed.
vPM is required when one company is not able to do the project by themselves, whatever the reasons may be. High skills are expected from the team members of a vPM and especially from the virtual project manager who has the huge task of planning, developing, controlling and finishing the vPM.
