about this item
Project managers leading international projects are faced with the challenges of cross cultural communication and behavioral differences, large-scale and technically complex projects involving multiple stakeholders, and slow decision making when time is of the essence.
Leading International Projects helps overcome these challenges by taking a holistic approach, drawing on systemic, behavioral, and psychological perspectives to build team trust, communicate to avoid misunderstanding and conflict, and identify and minimize risk of derailment. It provides guidance for successfully managing international projects through individual, team, and organizational diagnostic and development tools. Offering case studies from major international organizations to bring together leadership communication and psychological expertise, it presents the experiences of consultants and senior project management professionals and their reflections on projects that they ran.
