The size of technical projects like power plants, process plants, infrastructure projects and buildings is constantly increasing. Their complexity is rising simultaneously because of growing requirements in technology, safety and efficiency as well as consideration of the cultural background. Consequently, project managers need to be trained excellently with respect to technical knowledge, business management and – as more and more frequently issues like shareholder management or risk management will come into focus – they need to be trained also in the field of business law. Moreover, they need to negotiate strategically display strategic skills in negotiations.. Due to the complexity it is impossible for a company to train enough employees from within its own ranks.
