Project Management: A Natural Career Destination for Military Veterans

Dr. Tracey Richardson will share her research results from 595 military veterans, representing Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines, surveyed in order to ascertain the degree to which the branches of the military prepare individuals for possible future careers in civilian project management roles. Further, the study compared the relative knowledge of project management technical skill areas, processes and personal competencies. Although all branches provided responses indicating a high degree of familiarity with and preparation for project management roles, some significant differences were observed in responses between military branches.

This presentation will be of interest to not only those who have served in the military but also employers of veterans. The results put a spotlight on military experience as it translates into project management language and skills. 

Dr. Richardson is a tenured, Associate Professor of Project Management at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Worldwide. She has a Doctorate of Organizational Leadership and is a certified Project Management Professional and a Project Management Institute (PMI)-Risk Management Professional.  Tracey is a retired USAF Aircraft Maintenance Officer.
