I have a section full of FE-certified employees, but with Back-to-Basics rolling out, it appears as if FE is going to end without any inheritance for the new certifications. A spreadsheet for mass re-coding of slots went out, and the default that the spreadsheet suggests is to convert FE slots into ETM (Engineering and Technical Management), likely becasue it has "Engineering" in the title. ETM is a mixture of the old IT, PQM, ENG, and STM certifications. An FE to ETM conversion doesn't seem like the best idea, especially since current FE certified employees inherit nothing in the new system and would have to start from scratch. Was this a conscious decision to essentially eliminate the FE career field in Back-to-Basics?
Benjamin - Sorry it has take until now to respond to your inquiry. Any individual who is in a Project Management role, I would recommend they go into the Project Management Career Field. As you outlined, there is not really another career field into which other FE personnel can really migrate. I agree the conversion to ETM does not really work. To answer your last question, it was a conscious decision decision to eliminate the FE career field.
