International Development Projects: Peculiarities and Managerial Approaches
Every year, hundreds of millions of dollars are spent on non-emergency international development (ID) projects. However, a recent global McKinsey/Devex survey of more than one thousand ID professionals revealed that two thirds of them believe that their projects don't fully succeed.
In International Development Projects: Peculiarities and Managerial Approaches, researchers-practitioners from two of Italy's most prestigious universities provide practical insights into this phenomenon...and how the lessons learned in this high stakes international arena can help anyone managing projects that span companies, cultures and continents.
Incorporating the wisdom of almost 500 experienced ID project managers, as well as the latest in academic research, this book provides an unprecedented look at the unique characteristics of ID projects, the methods being used to manage them and the specific tools and processes that most often lead to success.
