The globalization, the changes within the organizations, the mutations of the employment market imply that the use of Intercultural Virtual Work Teams (IVWT) become a normal aspect within all organizations. The management of an IVWT whose members are geographically dispersed represents a real challenge. Some argue that within those teams the cultural factor has no implications, since the contact of the members themselves is being achieved only within the virtual space. Our opinion is that the situation is quite opposite. We should be able to find elements of the cultural national dimensions which are influencing IVWT. If they are ignored, by non implementing a intercultural management, they could become an obstacle to achieving the desired IVWT performance. A such example of a company which, by its specific activities, uses extensively IVWT, is Delamode Group BV. It has premises in UK, with branches and locations within many Asian and European countries. In Romania it is represented by Delamode Romania SRL.
