Medtronic (MDT) is at the Initial level on the Global Project Management Maturity Model. The processes for Global Project Management are either non-existent; or, not controlled. There are twenty-five knowledge areas to consider on a global project. These twenty-five knowledge areas are grouped into five main categories, each representing an element from the organization change theories: Global team management, Global communication, Global organizations, Collaborative tools, and Collaborative techniques” (Binder, 2009). #1 - Global Team Management : At Medtronic, there is no strategy to coordinate multicultural and virtual teams. There is no global guidance on making considerations for differences in culture, language skills and time zones. There is also little understanding on cultural dimensions. At MDT, all employees are trained and admonished to respect all members of the project team; yet, leaders and team members do not receive training and coaching on trust building; or, conflict resolution. At MDT, there is no maturity in this category of Global Project Management.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
