Several studies have been made about the communication process and its importance within organizations and teams. Alex Bavelas is one of the authors who first study how ways of communication influence the performance of teams as well as the efficiency in communication processes. Bavelas developed a study based on the application of a game, finding interesting results related to the communication process. This paper seeks to analyze the communication process based on Bavelas' work but using virtual tools. A virtual Bavela's Game is proposed, in order to simulate some aspects of the original game and to determine the structures of communication and the type of information that best fitted within work teams.
