Managing global projects presents unique challenges. This course addresses the knowledge, skills and behaviors required to successfully manage projects that span organizations, national boundaries and cultural differences.

In this course we will explore the impact on project management of culture, language variations, religious, regulatory and legal practices, technology penetration, temporal orientation, gender issues, corruption, ethics, personal liberty and political contexts. We learn how to meet global projects challenges through efficient use of practices and technology. The course will utilize available case studies and examples from companies to help students sharpen the skills needed to recognize and foster a successful international project environment.

First, you will learn how culture affects how teams perceive each other, lead, solve problems and execute tasks. Although the world is increasingly connected, the people behind the projects have biases, expectations and a perception of life that impacts all decisions.

Second, you will learn how to effectively manage global teams including how to build trust and collaboration across various cultures, time zones and technological settings. You will learn how to design communication channels and project structures effectively in a global project environment.

Third, you will become familiar with the issues underlying the problem of corruption, which is the abuse of trusted power for private gain. Reducing the risk of corruption strengthens a company’s reputation, builds the respect of employees and raises credibility with key stakeholders.

Finally, you will learn how the adoption of collaboration tools can enhance the global project experience.

This course is part of the RIT Project Management MicroMasters Program that is designed to teach how to successfully deliver projects in an international environment. In order to qualify for the MicroMasters Credential, you will need to earn a verified certificate in each of the three courses as well as pass a capstone exam.

Cultural Intelligence is very important for managing international projects, obviously, but the way this course is laid out and presented is beyond frustrating. I hated everything about it. The concepts learned and tools inside are valuable, but this entire course could be condensed into one week of course work. It's filled with fluff and unnecessary exercises. It's like someone said, "how do we make these few simple concepts as complicated and convoluted as possible to create an entire course out of them?". Also, the lectures are all bad reading off of a prompter, so it's hard to stay focused on what's being said without natural emphasis, emotion and facial expression like a normal lecture. It's disappointing that I was forced to pay for this course to participate in the MicroMasters program. I could go on but I wont spend another second of my life thinking about this course.

About instructors and providers I'm going to count on their experiences on teaching and higher qualifications.end of this course i will be able to manage a project in international context by understanding the impact of the culture on multiple aspects of a project, managing global teams and building trust, setting up a efficient global collaboration framework.
