  • Virtual Performance Assessment (VPA®) Licensing Workshop
    by intercultures


    Virtuality has arrived in our professional realities. The winners of tomorrow will be companies that proactively drive the performance of their virtual co-operations (virtual leadership, remote project management, networking, etc.).

    intercultures has developed a unique assessment tool to support companies in performing successfully in virtual global environments. The tool is specifically dedicated to senior trainers and consultants who want to enlarge their service portfolio with an approach that helps to design effective interventions for global teams.

    About Virtual Performance Assessment (VPA®)
    Linking project management, organizational and cultural issues with the world of communication technology, VPA is the most complete assessment tool to lay the basis for high performing virtual teams, groups, and networks.

    Based on years of research and experience consulting teams in virtual collaborations, tested numerous times in a variety of conditions, it assesses performance in 5 categories and 20 dimensions.

    The results of a VPA process enable consultants to design fine-tuned interventions and guide team leaders, members, and even whole organizations to areas of potential virtual performance improvement. The tool and the platform that hosts it are developed by intercultures, but once licensed, consultants have complete control from an individualized dashboard and are autonomous in the use of their assessments.
