An empirical investigation of international project management practices
the role of international experience
This paper reports the results of a survey of 56 United States (U.S.) and 25 international construction project managers. Project management areas and related tools important to international construction project management success are identified and analyzed. The results show that significant gaps exist between the existing body of knowledge and the practice of international project management in relation to variables that are relevant to construction project management success. Also reported are the differences between U.S. construction project managers and their international counterparts concerning the art and practice of project management. The implications of the findings of this study to business organizations and institutions of higher learning are examined in the context of a conceptual research framework.
