    Presentation Overview

    The Meridian mission is to develop global citizens. We work with customers to enable all members of their global organizations to be informed, engaged, and accountable. In this session of the Tools and Techniques series, Ted Dale (Managing Director, Meridian Resources) will give a comprehensive presentation and demonstration of “how project managers and software developers can be more productive when working virtually with people from other cultures. The presentation will cover:

    Global Teams Online (GTO) - a webtool offering teams a powerful way to assess their effectiveness and develop methods for improving their performance. GTO provides team members with an easy-to-use on-line survey, a variety of options for viewing the team's survey results, and an instantly-generated Action Plan based on the results of the project team's survey that pulls from a database of over 175 proven techniques for increasing team productivity.

    GlobeSmart - a web-based tool providing business personnel with quick and easy access to extensive knowledge - over 50 topics - on how to conduct business effectively with people from 36 countries around the world. In addition to being an invaluable 24/7 reference tool, GlobeSmart engages users in dynamic exercises that test knowledge and reinforce learning.

    PeerNotes - a knowledge management tool that will allow your organization to easily collect, organize, retain and access detailed knowledge that is specific to your global accounts or your global operations. The information in PeerNotes can be gathered from account managers, expatriates, local country nationals, business travelers and others who have the requisite knowledge to share.
