What a project! The 2015 Dakar Rally in South America

International Correspondent Cecilia Boggi in Argentina describes one of the world’s most fascinating projects in auto racing

23 March 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney, Buenos Aires – Cecilia Boggi, International Correspondent for PM World in Argentina and a regional mentor for PMI, has authored one of the most interesting project management reports in years. Her March report in the PM World Journal describing the 2015 Dakar Rally auto race through Argentina, Chile and Bolivia has been added to the PM World Library this month.

According to Cecilia’s introduction: “Buenos Aires City in January doesn’t seem to be that city of crazy traffic and people in a hurry like it is the rest of the year. During the summer, especially in January, almost all life in Argentina moves towards the summer centers and this is the time that the big cities take a break… However, during the early days of this year 2015, in midsummer, the city was revolutionized. Visitors came from all over the world with their flashy cars, trucks and other weird vehicles. That’s because since some years ago an important competition, that generates great interest in the region, is carried out in our country… I’m talking about the Dakar Rally, an annual competition that was originally from Europe to the city of Dakar, in Senegal, and in 2009 moved to the Southern Cone bringing cars, trucks, motorcycles and squads from around the world to tour the sand, rocks, mud and vegetation in the beautiful and varied landscapes of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia.
