Peter Thomas’s recent comment (here) and his post on developing an international BI strategy (here), reminded me that I had forgotten to post on some interesting dimensions of project and project complexity. Or at least they’re interesting to me…
This PDF outlines some of the complexity that culture introduces to managing global projects. It’s nothing revolutionary, but I’ve always liked two aspects of these slides:
- One slide outlines the cultural dilemnas well: “How does an India-based SAP project manager talk to a Manhattan-based marketing analyst?”
- Another reminds us that we need to remember that we’re individuals, not stereotypes… and yes, I’m the Paul R. on that slide.
