What is International Project Management?

As the internet allows companies to expand beyond borders more easily, cultural differences between company branches or even between a company and its customers can derail a project. An international project manager must be ready to address these issues with a range of skills. Project structures that happen internationally require a specific understanding of cultural differences and cultural norms for all locations involved. International Project Management helps a company develop and maintain a competitive edge in a brand new, international environment, and mitigates the risks involved in expanding beyond the domestic market.
