A/E Mandatory Training Up
“We’re seeing more and more companies requiring mandatory PM training, and that can only help make things better,” said Mark Zweig, president and CEO of ZweigWhite. “It’s pretty interesting to me to see how many firms have come to the awareness that being a capable designer or engineer does not necessarily equip one to be a good project manager.”
Additional survey data show that while 67 percent of firms provide training in client relations to project managers, only one-third provide training in leadership and supervision of personnel. Training on budgets is most common — 70 percent of firms reported providing this type of training.
