Successfully managing projects in a distributed environment is not something that will just happen. Project management in a distributed environment has complex challenges and issues that must be dealt with in addition to the “regular” project management challenges. In order to deliver successful project in such an environment the entire team must understand the challenges that are related to the distributed nature of the team (For example: the project manager might be located in a different geography then the development team etc…) and embrace the needed behavior that is required to deliver successful projects. In this project I will present few of the main challenges and few solutions, I will also incorporate some of my experience as a senior project management for the past 15 years. As part of this project I have read multiple articles and publications and also used my own experience.
