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.
