Global Project Management

OVERVIEW

Global projects are the key initiatives used to connect business strategy with global growth and compliance objectives. As corporate strategists increase the focus on obtaining future growth from global activities, organizations need to be able to take rigorous project disciplines to the global stage and execute projects effectively and efficiently.

90% of large companies are conducting global projects to take advantage of distributed skills; around-the-clock operations and virtual team environments, less than one third of them have effective, established practices to help project managers and team members working over a distance. As a consequence, most organizations struggle to reach the required levels of quality and effectiveness from these projects because their methods and practices are not adapted to a global multi-cultural environment, where most communication is in writing and asynchronous. Global Project Management describes how to adapt your organization and your projects to thrive in this environment.
