Program Description: Project Management in Extreme Situations: “An Antarctic Experience”

How do project managers deal with extreme situations when they are requested to? This project takes the question to a wholly new level. The task was to build a military research station for the Brazilian Government in Antarctica, with a Chinese construction team and a European engineering. The temperatures, the snow and the isolation were the simplest challenges we faced. During this workshop, we will discuss the peculiarities involved in managing time, risks, communication and stakeholders in this extreme and multicultural project.

Presentation will be in English language.
