Follow-the-Sun is a simulation based on different time zones. A global virtual team working at three sites, each one in a different time zone and of a different culture, will simulate follow-the-sun project work using only e-mail—with its endemic communication and cultural difficulties. An intervention is introduced before the last round to improve teamwork. The task is to draw a map of the world, a task that includes three stages: vision, design, and drawing.
Objective: to experience the specific problems of working under time stress in different time, place, and culture design teams
Target audience: people who are doing or will have to do follow-the-sun project work
