Fujitsu: Developing early-career project managers
Multinational information and communications technology equipment and services company Fujitsu identified a need to improve its training for early-career professionals.

This case study outlines the learning framework Fujitsu put in place to prepare project managers fully at the start of their careers. It details the key pillars of the framework—structured learning, learning from others, and experiential rotations—and the benefits that resulted.
