International Project Management
- Kathrin Köster - Heilbronn University, Germany
With project management becoming an increasingly global endeavor, a comprehensive and international student text that reflects this reality is essential.
International Project Management does just that, systematically linking the key elements of cross-cultural management and the particularities of an international context, with the tools and techniques of project management.
With full pedagogical support including:
- A wide variety of examples and illustrations, including an in-depth, end-of-chapter case study with case questions
- Student exercises and Review Questions
- Detailed further reading
- The full support of a companion website, featuring a Teacher's Manual, PowerPoint slides, and SAGE online readings
The textbook will be an indispensable resource for all students, both undergraduate and MBA, with a project management element to their studies.
`An extremely useful book for anyone who is involved in international projects. It manages to bring across the complexity of the subject, including the 'soft factors' that are frequently forgotten, in a systematic way which is easy-to-understand and to implement in business practice. This makes an ideal choice for MBA programs and other professional degrees' - Prof. Anne-Wil Harzing, Department of Management and Marketing, University of Melbourne
`Provides a wealth of insights into the organizational, cultural and people aspects of project management. It effectively blends scholarship and practice with chapters offering cutting-edge research, real-life examples and useful project management tools. This volume is of significant value to both scholars and executives alike' - G nter K. Stahl, Professor of International Management, Vienna University of Economics and Business; Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, INSEAD.
This book is an additional source for teaching the topic of international project management. A good overview of the topic and a good mixture of theory and practice.
This book is an obligatory source for people interested in international project management and distributed project teams. It is well structured, contains all relevant information, interesting case studies, exercises for students and review questions. Information is presented in a very comprehensible way. Reading this book is a pleasure. It can be easily adopted in project management courses. I will definitey recommend this book to my students and will use it in my next project management course.
Not focused on PM methods. My undergraduates need introductory concepts and concrete methods to follow. This book would suit a level six or seven learner more.
Koster's book is a useful reference for mapping and completing international consulting projects conducted by students.
This book provides a useful international perspective to events project management and also covers many different aspects.
I believe it will be easy for my international MBA students to read and understand. I also liked the layout and sequence of the text.
Thanks for the inspection copy!
I will recommend it for my students next year!
