With a lack of soft skills contributing to 40%-70% of engineering project failures, RedVector arms companies with the “AEC Success” Course Series for soft skill/professional development
Tampa — January 20, 2016 — RedVector, the leader in eLearning and workforce training solutions for the architecture, engineering, construction, industrial and facility management industries, has teamed up with presenter Christian J. Knutson, P.E., PMP, to continue a series of video-based professional development courses for AEC professionals.
The AEC Success online course series aims to help engineers and other AEC professionals improve business development and sales skills, become better decision-makers, and improve time management skills. Today, a lack of soft skills has been cited as a major contributor to engineering project failures—industry studies put the failure rate somewhere between 40% and 70%, according to the Association for Talent Development (atd). It’s no wonder that AEC firms ranked training and education as one of their top business development tactics for 2016 (at 41.8%), according to a Building Design + Construction (BD+C) Survey.
“We’re proud to bring Christian J. Knutson on board to continue to build our top-quality professional development training library for design and construction professionals,” said Bobby Person, RedVector Product Director. “Through these courses, our mission is to advance and develop careers and improve project success rates.”
RedVector’s New AEC Success Courses Are as Follows:
AEC Success: Effective Decision Making
AEC Success: Time Management and Billable Hours
AEC Success: Business Development and Sales
