  • Managing Projects
    Across Borders
    Jeffrey Hurley
    December 2010
  • Or…How do I reliably deliver in 4 different Regions while working with teams in 7 different Countries?
  • Managing a global project requires more than managing time differences
  • It is about managing four Obstacles to Great Global Project Management
  • First: Communication
  • How do you feel when information isn’t being shared?
  • Reach
    Frequency
  • Second: Scope & Procurement
  • Scope:
    I want a Rocket Ship
    But…we are an investment bank
  • Getting resources allocated in the appropriate locations to maximize cost and delivery
  • Third: Direction
  • Managing scope and expectations for each region
  • What do team members do when the requirement doesn’t work in reality
  • Fourth: Sponsorship
  • Do you have Senior Level Business Sponsorship in each Region
  • Project Managers use implied authority
  • Are you Using Your Tools
    Instant Messenger
    Email
    Video on your phone
    SharePoint
    Phone Calls/Conference Calls
    Voicemail
    Then PowerPoint/Excel/Project/PPM
  • If you are going to make a commitment
    Be prepared to deliver on that promise…
