Virtual team management has a special role in developing software at global level, where the team members are not present physically at one location but they are engaged to complete their task instead apart from one another. They can also face various challenges regarding virtual team management. Like other protocols, this protocol has a special objective which is to provide a road map for developing a Model for Virtual Team Management Challenges (MVTMC). We will try to find out all the risks faced by team members in virtual team management. This model will be useful for outsourcing vendor industries in addressing the problems in virtual team management and will provide the practices to overcome these challenges. The method which we will use in this study for development of MVTMC is systematic literature review (SLR) methodology for identifying the challenges faced by outsourcing vendors in virtual team management. We have also planned to conduct empirical study in software field for the validation of identified challenges and also to point out practices for the identified risks or challenges. The expected outcome of this research work would be to develop MVTMC that will be based on the finding of SLR and empirical study.
