Unternehmen sichern ihre Wettbewerbsfähigkeit durch Kooperationen, Fusionen oder Übernahmen sowie der Etablierung in neuen (Auslands-)Märkten. Diese Entwicklungen geschehen zum großen Teil im Rahmen foreign besetzter Projekte. Vom Erfolg dieser Projekte hängt damit auch in entscheidendem Maße der Erfolg dieser Unternehmen und ihrer Weiterentwicklung ab. Um internationales Projektmanagement erfolgreich zu gestalten, bedarf es Faktoren, die über die Standardmethoden und -werkzeuge deutlich hinausgehen. Einen zentralen Erfolgsfaktor stellt dabei die interkulturelle Kompetenz der Projektmanager und Projektmitarbeiter dar. Diese Arbeit soll mögliche Probleme im internationalen Projektmanagement beleuchten und im aspect auf dem Bereich der interkulturellen Kompetenz als Erfolgsfaktor im internationalen Projektmanagement eingehen.
