Technology, globalization and travel costs have all caused organizations to rely more heavily on virtual teams (dePillis and Furumo 2007). The use of virtual teams has been used extensively for IT projects and particularly software development. In this research-in-progress study, three leadership conditions were analyzed. Preliminary results show that virtual teams led by Supportive leaders had higher levels of participation and trust among members than teams led by Commanding leaders. output of teams is often superior to that of an individual because of the synergy that comes from individuals sharing ideas and functional expertise. However, in virtual teams there is the chance that the technology will negatively impact performance. 2. LITERATURE REVIEW 2.1 Trust
