We urge smaller businesses to try and learn from the shortcomings that organisations such as FIFA have experienced in the past.

The warning has been released following a new study from an international focus group as it highlights the challenges FIFA faces in the future despite the success of this year’s World Cup.

The International Seminar organisation, the body behind the study, has outlined the host of challenges that FIFA faces over the next eight years. The study incorporates local, national and international aspects of project management setup. It involves an intense cultural diversification programme that would ready both the tourists and the Qatari residents for the predicted culture shock, amongst other issues.

It highlights the need for top-level project management skills due to the sheer scale of the event. Cutting edge project management techniques must be employed in order for the tournament to run smoothly. Without them, the difficulties that faced Brazil would be multiplied in 2022 due to an increased level of pressure on Qatar’s authorities.

The management infrastructure has already been the target of many allegations in recent weeks. Many believe that Qatar’s officials do not possess the correct business case template in order to the maximise success of World Cup 2022.

As a leading figure in modern project management, a spokesperson for ILX has welcomed the fact more light is being shed on the organisation process. ‘At ILX we believe the importance of preparation is not something to be taken lightly. For Qatar and FIFA, organisations with little financial restriction, the scale of the mistakes is bound to be amplified.

"We urge smaller businesses to try and learn from the shortcomings that organisations such as FIFA have experienced in the past. One of the pillars of our PRINCE2 project management system is to learn from the mistakes of previous examples. Without doing so, you leave yourself open to countless risks."
