High-performing teams are a must in this world of intense competition and higher expectations.  Global virtual teaming has become a necessity as organizations become increasingly distributed and suppliers and clients actively engage in joint projects.  Teams work across geographical and organizational boundaries to deliver solutions and services to global users where distance and differences, both geographic and cultural, amplify the effect of issues and factors that are relatively straightforward when managing a team of people in the same location. 

This course delivers practical concepts and techniques that participants will start using immediately on their global projects.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for program managers, project managers, team leaders, and others responsible for managing and working on cross-cultural global projects or tasks and with teams that work predominantly in virtual mode.  Different versions of the course can be presented to participants at different management levels within an organization.   Participants should have experience working on or managing projects that span cultural and/or geographical boundaries.

Performance Focus
What You Will Learn
