Click through for findings from a recent survey on project management training and its effect on the organization, conducted by ESI International.

According to a new study released by ESI International, a leading project management training company, project managers are being trained in fewer skills compared to 2012 — by as much as 20 percent. It was found, however, that organizations committed to applying training on the job and measuring its impact on job performance deliver projects on-time and to-budget more often than organizations without training adoption in place.

“The across-the-board decrease in project management training is a disturbing trend that organizations need to reverse,” said ESI executive vice president J. LeRoy Ward, PMP, PgMP, CSM. “Not only is it detrimental to the professional development of project managers, it has a direct, negative effect on project execution, which impacts an organization’s bottom line and its ability to satisfy its customers.”

ESI’s latest annual benchmarking study,The Global State of the PMO: An Analysis for 2013,” shows that having a project or program management office (PMO) tasked with training and learning sustainment, among other responsibilities, positively affects training levels and project outcomes.
