Global Projects: Leadership in Action
Description:Global and distributed projects require more than project management they require project leadership. Challenging global project’s opportunity for around the clock progress is that the number of teams involved multiply, one-for-one, the normal risks, issues, and personnel problems of any project.  Compounding this is the exponential growth in communication difficulties, frustrations with time zones, complications from language fluency, and the invisible barriers of culture incongruity.  Visualizing a project—modeling the project’s structure, behaviors, cultures, and risks—with its team members and stakeholders, exposes its unattractive elements giving the team the opportunity to discuss and mitigate them long before they become issues.
The model for this change is leadership. We will discuss three of its basic principles—autonomy, mastery, and purpose and the audience will then actively work applying these values to prototype a successful global project. Doing this, the attendees will identify the strengths and weaknesses of global projects, and, as a group, propose solutions to each problem along with methods to amplify its strengths. The open conversation and resulting action items, expose concepts that are innovative and sometimes radical, in changing the interrelationship of people, process, and the inanimate objects that constitute our projects.
