Dr. Paul Gardiner, Prof. Jim Ritchie and Jean Binder debated live on Dubai Eye Radio: Is Dubai "Global Project Management Ready"?

 radio-1.jpg  ·         Global projects are a unique set of projects that require special consideration for success.
·         Global projects usually have the following characteristics: participants from more than one location, more than one time zone, multiple cultures, more than one language, multiple organisations.
·         This makes them complex compared to most projects.

·         Jean's research has developed a set of
25 success criteria, within five dimensions that are considered important for project success.
·         Dubai is the home of large and complex projects ... but are the project managers in Dubai ready for global projects?
