Harnessing different to boost effectiveness

Introduction

Whether you are a manager, project manager or someone involved in a project with an international dimension, your own perception of time is far from universal. Perceptions of time are highly personal, affected by the personal body clock, education, culture, role and seniority.

These differences may be perceived as sources of incompatibility, even though modern businesses are now managed in line with western processes and standards.

In this module, however, you will learn how to draw on the similarities between different perceptions of time and enrich cooperation.
