Managing Coordination in global projects

Bunjaku, Sebahate (2010)
Department of Business Administration
Abstract
Coordinating global projects with resources from all around the world is more dependent of the team members´ background, attitude and personality rather than cultural differences. The projects that gave the apprehension of working in a team instead of a group of people resulted in more successful projects. The projects that were the most complex to manage, with resources from different offices and a customer located in different continent, were the most successful. The projects were managed well because of teamwork, clarified scope and responsibilities. In all the cases the focus is to understand the customer and dependent of which market company, the customer-focus is fluctuating.
