There was once a period when the people you worked with were seated just few meters away from you. You could easily walk to their desk and close the discussion. When you wanted to talk to a group of people you could invite them to a meeting room and close the discussion.Today, the team is diversified. We have one member of the team in Delhi another in Cochin and the other one in Kolkota. So meeting them face to face for a discussion or calling them to a meeting room is really not possible. With the latest invention in the telecommunication we have also invented conference calls. When 3 or more people get into a telephonic conversation with each other we call it a conference call.
