Countries with small labor markets with limited availability of professional may require a flexible, team approach rather than one highly qualified project director as often required as key personnel by U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs. The project had to replace the project director two times. According to the American Institute for Research, qualified labor market information professionals already were employed by government institutions, and it did not want to hire qualified professionals away from these institutions, which was a possibility. Instead, it opted to hire less qualified project directors that did not work out. Eventually, the project decided to use a combination of a highly qualified and respected international consultants, a regionally-based manager with strong government contacts, and an American Institute of for Research manager with ample U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs project experience. Together, the team members exceeded the project director requirements and appears to have been effective in fulfilling the project director requirements.
