Just a quick one. As I organize a global conference for the PMs in my company, with the theme, "Project Management - A World of Difference", I am reminded of how important it is to be aware of the global nature of business, of projects, and of the interdependencies we all generally have on each other as humans.
To illustrate (in a rather sarcastic way) what can go wrong if you do NOT gain this awareness, I send you to a special video on the subject. Thank goodness this is sarcasm. I hope.
To see what happens if you do not know your world, see this video.
