This is a book about the essential requirements for building a humane and efficient collaboration with international team members. You do not need to be an intercultural expert. It is written for project and program managers who work in technical, international and remote environments to deliver a project. Early-stage project managers will get some frameworks and guidance. Seasoned project managers will reflect on their current practices and find some paths to improvement to avoid misunderstandings and delays in projects.
