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…
