Project-oriented career path and incentive systems

Initial situation

Project-oriented career path and incentive systems are becoming increasingly important. With the increasing number of projects, also the number of project managers who are seeking medium to long-term career prospects rises. Without opportunities for development, identification with the company decreases with many employees. Traditionally hierarchy-oriented career models no longer provide opportunities for development for many employees. Flatter hierarchies and generally changed organizational forms are the major causes. Project-oriented development steps assembled to a "project manager career path" supplement traditional manager career paths and encourage new prospects.
