Professional Development Consulting

The software industry lacks well defined career paths and continuing training for software professional staff. A well educated workforce is significantly more productive and effective. Without highly skilled staff, many companies face project overruns, low quality software, and unexpected project delays. Construx has developed a Professional Development Ladder to help companies implement effective programs to train and retain employees. Our PDL includes structured career path guidance for all software professional specialties and detailed steps needed for career development at each level.
