Leadership, Multiculturalism and Supporting Governance by Thomas Lippiatt
Presented via a case study of the Rumaila Project in Basra, Iraq, the topics of leadership, multiculturalism, and supporting governance are examined through the lens of expat project management in an international business environment.
The Rumaila Project is subject to an extreme set of constraints; it is an excellent example for project managers interested in developing their soft skills, specifically adaptive leadership in the face of risk materialization.
The presentation details lessons learned from managing a diverse staff contingent under challenging business circumstances, and the methodologies of good leadership under pressure are categorically examined.
The presentation covers topics common to projects of any size or type, and is geared to be accessible for project managers across industries.
