Projects Without Boundaries goes beyond leadership theory to provide a powerful suite of best practices for building high-performance teams and consistently delivering successful project results in a virtual, distributed, and multicultural environment. It gives virtual project managers the tangible framework they need to effectively balance their time between managing the project and leading the team, which requires a strikingly different approach in the virtual workspace as compared to traditional projects with co-located teams. The book's coherent, holistic content prepares you to confidently assume the virtual project manager's role by addressing every aspect of the role. Singular guidance shows you how to:

  • Confidently step into managing a virtual project with a dependable approach aligned with the PMBOK® Guide lifecycle
  • Get up to speed quickly with in-depth case studies illustrating critical concepts along with key tools and takeaways
  • Enhance your performance with a variety of ready-to-use tools, including a readiness assessment to evaluate your team and organization

Build the team and lead them to achievement—wherever they are—with Projects Without Boundaries.
