If you manage a virtual team, working across time zones can be a major cause of confusion and miscommunication. If you’re not used to dealing with it, then using the right tools like World Clock might help you decide when to schedule meetings, submit all reports and make sure you know what time it is where they are.
Daylight Saving Time changes could probably be the most challenging part of working across different time zones. And because not everyone uses DST, even within the same time zone or country, this will add confusion to anybody who doesn’t know these changes.
This infographic on the Biz 3.0 blog is a perfect guide for virtual teams who are relying on the time difference in major cities around the world. You can use it as a reference in calling people across multiple time zones, and make sure the parties are available during that time.
