About the Book

This volume will explore the confluence of regional nuances and global project management practices. Recognizing the unique socio-cultural, economic, and professional dynamics of Europe, Asia, and Africa, this volume will offer tailored project management insights for practitioners from these regions. In an era of globalization, why would one need a region-specific book? The answer lies in the rich tapestry of cultures, traditions, and business methodologies that differ across continents. This book will bridge the gap between global best practices and local relevance, ensuring project managers have the technical knowledge and cultural understanding to navigate challenges in varied professional landscapes. From the bustling metropolises of Asia and the diverse economies of Europe to the rapidly evolving landscapes of Africa, each chapter in this volume will explore deep real-world examples, case studies, and techniques tailored for success in specific professions within these regions. Whether an IT professional in Bangalore, a construction manager in Berlin, or an entrepreneur in Lagos, this volume aims to provide the tools, techniques, and regional insights one needs to lead projects to success.

Note: There are NO submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication. This book will be submitted for possible indexation to Scopus, Web of Science, and major indices.
