International Project Management

When projects with a multicultural team are managed, planned and implemented beyond the borders of the business location, technical expertise and smooth communication between the project members are crucial factors.

International project management is far more than just project work in a different language. It entails special demands related to handling, management, and communication.
If you closely examine the features of other cultures and develop an understanding of how different personalities can influence the project work, you will be able to manage international projects successfully.

This will put you in the position to better assess intercultural risks and opportunities and to account for them in your project planning.
This seminar gives you an awareness of the decisive factors for working successfully in international project teams along with practical, proven help in building and managing international project teams.
Prerequisites: You should have fundamental knowledge of project management and at least initial experience as a project manager, project worker or in other project work functions.
