This paper describes a research project carried out as part of a Doctor of Business Administration program by an Australian Project Manager participating in International Engineering Projects. The research points out to the importance of conducting a cultural risk especially in countries where the professional project management practices are yet being established either due to their stage of economic development or due to their recent democratization. The research used an embedded case study approach treating individual projects executed internationally as cases to be analysed. Multiple sources of evidence were used to arrive at the conclusions from the research pointing out organizational and personal strategies to manage cultural issues in international projects using a risk management approach.
