If you’ve ever been in a corporate training session, chances are you’ve noticed fellow project managers coming in late, or not at all. The excuse is often, “There is so much pressure on the project that it’s very difficult to make time for training.”
In my experience, project managers who choose work over training often expect the same from team members. So when a project is running, learning all but stops. In the first scenario, the project manager consistently misses opportunities to upgrade skills.
