Mastering a Major Complexity of Global Project Management

Global Project Management has become more complicated in recent years along with the variety of potential events that can disrupt flows across borders. Cross-cultural contact is increasing, creating a greater potential for both conflict and cooperation. Given this rapidly changing environment, the ability to relate to people with varying cultural backgrounds is an essential skill for Project Managers.

This program focuses on results-oriented leadership, collaboration and communication with individuals and organizations from different world regions. Going beyond mere tolerance, this program delves deeply into barriers to effective international project management, and provides strategies for building productive international collaboration resulting in enhanced project performance.

 Educational Presentation

A "Sure Fire" Way to Ensure Schedule Performance!

Project Managers are usually confronted with situations and events that have a negative effect on the established schedule and they are still expected to bring the project in on time. One proven method to improve schedule compliance is to employ process mapping methodology to selected processes. This analytical improvement technique provides project teams with an avenue to reduce the time required for a selected process without reducing quality.
