Project Management Institute

Setting objectives for international engineering and construction

Successful projects in today's international engineering and construction environments rely on effective project management.Traditional models for setting project objectives have been two dimensional, and do not translate well into foreign markets where technology is not automatically the most advanced available, and national objectives do not match those of the project's country of origin.Success relies heavily on an understanding of cross-cultural work environments so that appropriate plans may be made.To this end, a three dimensional Project Objective Model (POM) was developed that could incorporate local conditions for technology, human resource skills, project complexity and project dimension into the project management planning.A series of questions will help the project manager set, validate, implement, control, and report the status of objectives.
