Understanding the Project Manager competencies in a diversified project management community using a project management competency value grid

by McHenry, Robert L., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 417 pages; 3310694


Project Management is an internationally recognized and widely accepted management practice used by many individuals, both formally and informally, across numerous industries. While there is an increasing demand for certified Project Management Professionals (PMP) today and the use of project management has existed in some form for many decades there are still significant problems occurring within the discipline. Late project completions and costly over-runs negatively impact many stakeholders. Competent Project Managers (PM) could be the key to success. The research conducted and resulting analysis identifies key competencies perceived by actual Project Managers (PM) that a PM should possess to be highly successful in today's current and the near future's expected environment and those competencies actually used by the organization. The research discusses the competencies perceived as those needed by a successful PM.
