How to handle diverse teams in joint
global business and development projects
The new discipline of Intercultural Project Management meets today’s urgent need for knowledge and experience when working with culturally diverse teams in joint global business and development projects. This training is a competence asset that increases managers’ effectiveness at any step of project management, independently of their international experience or seniority level, and leads to improved performance and achievement in all management activities, with a clear and direct impact on P&L results.
Research studies show that managerial methods and behaviours are strongly influenced by each manager’s national and cultural background. But there is not sufficient awareness about either the possible negative impact of neglecting this issue or, conversely, exploiting the waiting opportunities for substantial improvement of project management processes and project success by applying intercultural methods of management.
The course will coach and guide participants to recognize, detect, understand and manage different Corporate and National Cultural differences to maximise business related activities within projects.
Participants will forecast positive and/or negative impact on P&L related to all activities which are affected and impacted by cultural differences during management of their project and along the project life cycle. The practical approach of the course is complemented by presentations and discussion of a number of real-life cases experienced by the trainers.
