    Abstract

    This paper considers the management of global projects, focusing on good practice to deliver the specified outcomes. The requirement for good communications is highlighted. A system is needed, incorporating a method to check understanding between the project personnel, especially in respect of different nationalities. The facility to translate and filter information, as required, is mentioned. The aim is to encourage collaboration between the different parties involved in running the project. The use of a detailed plan as an integrating mechanism to coordinate the project activities across national boundaries. The delivery of the required outcomes will probably include the management of both virtual and in-person teams, possibly in different countries. This will generate challenges for the leadership of these concerns, which are noted along with sustainable practices, even at the expense of profit. A review of key journals was enacted, in order to identify important themes. An interview was conducted with a practitioner from a firm that runs international projects. The main aim was to gather knowledge of good practice for running global projects. A template for the creation of a strategy for managing such projects was compiled, identifying critical activities for effective delivery of the specified outcomes.
