I am a marketing consultant, and when I found it necessary to learn about international project management, I found the prospect intimidating. But Murphy's "International Project Management" is both comprehensive *and* accessible without wasting my time. Particularly helpful is the section on cultural issues with regards to women. The author devotes several pages to advising women project managers--with very specific pointers!

The book spends two chapters putting international project management into perspective before diving into the nuts and bolts of it. Perhaps the most helpful is chapter 3, "Difficulties and Risks of International Projects"...things any company needs to know *before* bidding a project.

Along the way, simple checklists, flowcharts, and sample worksheets enable a project manager to be fully prepared in each stage of the process. The author is obviously highly experienced in this field with extensive (intriguing?) experience.

I highly recommend this book for project managers and those who advise them!

This book offers a curious combination of wide generalizations about managing projects overseas, and extremely detailed guidance in the shape of project-management forms and checklists. Owen Jay Murphy explains obvious information - people pursue international projects to make money and folks in other countries have different customs. Yet he also provides sophisticated information, like detailed, complex data on some Six Sigma techniques, and project evaluation and review templates such as Gantt, PERT and WBS charts. At its best, getAbstract finds that this book provides a reasonably easy-to-read summary of some crucial steps and useful tools for managing international projects.
