`An extremely useful book for anyone who is involved in international projects. It manages to bring across the complexity of the subject, including the 'soft factors' that are frequently forgotten, in a systematic way which is easy-to-understand and to implement in business practice. This makes an ideal choice for MBA programs and other professional degrees' - Prof. Anne-Wil Harzing, Department of Management and Marketing, University of Melbourne

`Provides a wealth of insights into the organizational, cultural and people aspects of project management. It effectively blends scholarship and practice with chapters offering cutting-edge research, real-life examples and useful project management tools. This volume is of significant value to both scholars and executives alike' - G nter K. Stahl, Professor of International Management, Vienna University of Economics and Business; Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, INSEAD.

This book is an additional source for teaching the topic of international project management. A good overview of the topic and a good mixture of theory and practice.

Not focused on PM methods. My undergraduates need introductory concepts and concrete methods to follow. This book would suit a level six or seven learner more.
