Project management is a discipline that is practiced in today’s organizations on a global scale. The job of a project manager has therefore become more complex as projects are carried out using team members in different geographical locations who come from a diverse range of languages, cultures, and worldviews. Project managers improve their chances of success when they seek to understand the cultures with which they interact on a day to day basis and modify the way they manage, communicate, and organize. This Webinar will identify some of the most significant complexities faced by project managers in global projects and provide pointers for existing or aspiring managers and project managers.
