One of them is use of virtual work (also called remote work, dispersed work or telework) when the workers are remote from each other and communicate through ICT. For more complex projects virtual teams are built-up. In the light of theory and practice of human capital management, job performance management of virtual teams is a new area with many differences from management of traditional teams.

This method consists in team gaming of specially designed games in the virtual world Second Life. Subsekvently we give several examples of the use of virtal world for virtual cooperation development. Research of this methods is on its very beginning, but the results are more than encouraging.
