Question to a Project Management Professional
|Question||Select the best option|
|You are dealing with a complex problem in your international project and you want to discuss it within your team. You notice, during the first conference call that the expert doesn’t share her knowledge and doesn’t speak much. What do you do?||
Answer & Explanation
Explanation : The first thing to do is to evaluate the real causes (and not the effects) of the problem. One of them could be the language and asking the expert about her language knowledge might be a good starting point to identify the real problem. There are many challenges to effectively communicate in multinational project team. For one team member to successfully communicate a technical concept to another team member in a different country can involve encoding the message in the appropriate language, sending the message using a variety of technologies, and having the receiver decode the message and replay or provide feedback.
