Global Project Management: Communication, Collaboration and Management Across Borders

Front Cover
CRC Press, Apr 22, 2016 - Business & Economics - 312 pages

Global Project Management describes how to adapt your organisation and your projects to thrive in business environments which require distributed skills, around-the-clock operations and virtual team environments.

The book goes beyond simple recommendations on collaborative tools, to suggest the development of best practices on cross-cultural team management and global communication, recommend organisational changes and project structures, and propose alternatives for the implementation of the new practices and methods.

Filled with real-life examples and techniques, the book illustrates how to apply the recommendations as part of the successful management of any global project.
