Project Management
in Cross-Cultural Setting

Successful project management can be measured by answering four simple questions.
« Are we within scope? » , « Are we on time? » ,
« Are we in budget and can we meet our quality goals? »

Leading complex projects in a mono-cultural environment is challenging but hitting these goals in a multicultural environment requires something more – a nuanced understanding of how different cultures work together.

Team leaders often focus on goals and milestones without considering how cross-cultural differences lead to miscommunications, demotivate staff and ultimately contribute to costly delays.

This one-day interactive workshop focuses on improving cultural awareness through practical tools to build a unified team.

Our focus on building on similarities and not getting ‘bogged down’ in differences powerfully brings together project management best practice with the unlimited potential of a multicultural workplace.
