are employees trained to work in project teams?
The use of project management techniques, the high level of employees involved in project teams, and the increased number of overall projects in the manufacturing world led to the concern that not all people involved in project teams are prepared or trained for employing project management skills. To answer the questions, To what extent are projects and project management used within manufacturing companies? and What is the preparation of company personnel for working in a project environment?, a literature search was conducted and a questionnaire administered to 35 project management training workshop attendees. The results showed that the number of projects have increased over the past few years, but members of the project team are not properly trained or prepared to be a full participant of a project team.
