 Global Project Management - Communications, Collaboration and Management Across Borders

  Global Project Management
Communication, Collaboration and Management Across Borders
Jean Binder  

ISBN-13: 978-0-566-08706-6

Ongoing research shows that whilst 90% of large companies are conducting global projects to take advantage of distributed skills, around-the-clock operations and virtual team environments, less than one third of them have effective, established practices to help project managers and team members working over a distance. As a consequence, most organizations struggle to reach the required levels of quality and effectiveness from these projects because their methods and practices are not adapted to a global multi-cultural environment, where most communication is in writing and asynchronous. Global Project Management describes how to adapt your organization and your projects to thrive in this environment. The book goes beyond the recommendations on collaborative tools, to suggest the development of best practices on cross-cultural team management and global communication, recommend organizational changes and project structures, and propose alternatives for the implementation of the new practices and methods.

The text is filled with real-life examples and techniques and illustrates how to apply the recommendations as part of the successful management of any global project.

Offshoring Secrets
Building and Running a Successful India Operation
Utkarsh Rai 

ISBN-13: 978-1600050619 

Although India is a great destination for an offshore experiment to reduce costs, improved efficiency and a shortened time-to-market, delivering a seamless offshore experience is not easy and is not a fully stable process. Unrealistic expectations, hidden pitfalls, unexpected twists in policies, markets, and strategies can create hurdles that can disrupt even the simplest of an offshore exercise.This book is an in-depth analysis of the author’s experiences and interactions with various people in the industry. This book is written for both Indian and overseas audiences, who are involved in setting up the operation, executing projects and working in support organization like the HR, Administration, and Finance.

The ninth Annual Global CEO survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers stated that 44% of the CEOs interviewed are planning to open up an office in India .  If you are one of the 44% or are thinking of raising the percentage, then this book can help lay the blueprint for success.
