Buenos Aires, Argentina

Since 2002, Buenos Aires has experienced a tremendous economic surge that has helped it recover from the debilitating recession it experienced throughout the 1990s. Driving this surge is a fledgling IT outsourcing industry and an influx of international businesses opening offices within this city housing three million residents. This article discusses how the city's recent business boom is helping Buenos Aires to lift itself out of its recession. In doing so, it overviews the state of Argentina's practice of project management and explains how its business activity--particularly within its IT outsourcing industry--is driving a need for certified project managers who can help companies old and investors new plan and implement projects that could transform Argentina's future. It also identifies the challenges that project managers must resolve to improve the process of managing Argentinean projects. Accompanying this article are six sidebars profiling some of the Argentina's high-profile, planned projects.
