Abstract: Global markets are increasingly taking advantage of the strength and economies of a diverse newlineglobal workforce. It is common on international projects to find multi-cultural teams or newlineorganizations located in multiple countries. It is also common to find such projects handled by newlineProject Managers and team members who come from different countries. Each of these teams in newlineturn could again comprise of members from many different cultures/societal backgrounds. In newlineaddition, the pressure on the industry to increase productivity and reduce costs is unrelenting. newlineThis leads to flatter project structures, increasing the need for a sound management of the newlineknowledge base essential for successful conduct of projects. newlineThorougher is the knowledge management across the international project fields, the flatter and newlinepredictable becomes the project management, curtailing project uncertainty to low proportions. newlineThere is no ready mix to solve every project problem. However, the more prepared/armed the newlineproject leadership/team is with the virtues of the key knowledge dimensions influencing the newlineCross-Cultural projects scenario the better suited is the project management style to forestall and newlineto eliminate uncertainties. Once uncertainties are eliminated or at least reduced the probability of newlineproject failure is also proportionately reduced. The thesis aims at research work to unearth key newlinedimensions impacting cross-cultural project teams functioning which are indeed universal and newlineapplicable across all cultural contexts and run a survey to further validate the same. newline
