Metateams are temporary confederations of dislocated teams from different firms working on a single Information Systems (IS) development project. These teams (or groups) are linked by interdependencies and commercial agreements and use information and telecommunication technologies as the main media for their communication activities. Within these socio-technical systems, teams are members of virtual teams of teams, where key teams belong to different firms, each performing well-defined functions in accordance with its contractual role, with the objective of executing a single overarching project.
