The purpose of this show will be to discuss how project management techniques can help improve outcomes for international development projects. The interview will address such questions as: To what extent are Project Management Institute and other industry standard approaches applicable to complex and challenging overseas development projects? What are potentially the biggest benefits in using project management tools, and how might they vary depending on a country’s level of development?
