"When we selected the Project Management:Competencies and Structure course for inclusion in our InfoComm Academy program, we immediately saw the need for business owners and principals to be included in the process their employees go through. To do this right, companies may find that their employees need to change certain ingrained ways of doing things. If the boss isn't aware of these changes, or doesn't agree with these changes, the value of training their employees is greatly diminished."
