International Project Management

Construct effective collaboration across borders

Your project team is dotted around the globe and common working hours are almost impossible? The potentials in your team are great, but how do you consolidate the knowledge and experience of the various experts, especially when different cultures are involved?

Seminar Objectives

In the seminar “International Project Management” you will learn about cultural differences that can lead to misunderstandings and problems in international teams. You will receive suggestions and ideas to bridge cultural differences, to work well together as a team and to use synergy effects. In this way you will learn how to manage and communicate effectively and which rules have proven themselves in international project management.

Your Benefit

We combine short theoretical inputs and many practical workshops that are tailored to the needs of the participants. With the help of cultural dimensions you gain insights into foreign cultures and can quickly prepare yourself for working in international teams. At the same time you receive concrete advice for your current questions and for challenging situations of your own team. Certified participants receive 16 PDUs or a certificate of further education for IPMA.
