Posted on March 15, 2017 by FMI CorporationToday’s global engineering and construction (E&C) industry is changing rapidly. Barriers to global trade have been reduced significantly, enabling capital, labor, goods and technology to flow freely across borders. This has increased business opportunities exponentially across the globe. However, globalization has also vastly increased the complexity of the E&C business environment. Changing customer demands and new funding mechanisms are driving industry players to diversify and seek mergers and acquisitions in new markets around the world to gain access to new expertise and project opportunities. This new global context presents unique leadership development challenges for companies in the construction and engineering fields. Grooming leaders who can look beyond traditional, domestic borders and adopt a global mindset takes time and requires an entirely new learning approach.
