    Hi,,
    As a part of my research in understanding team effectiveness in virtual, co-located and distributed teams, I am required to collect data.
    I am in the process of collecting data and need your help in getting the same from your team. The most suitable ones would be those teams involved in product development or research.

    I’d like to approach as a student and request your help and support in enabling my research.
    I hosted the questionnaire on a website for convenience and look forward to response.

    regards
    Niranjan

    Remember, Google Guy Negre!
