Critical evaluation of project manager's competency standard for proposing a comprehensive model
AbstractIdentifying and developing project manager’s competency is becoming more and more important in a today competitive market. This importance also has absorbed the attention of main project management institutions such as Project Management Institute (PMI), Association for Project Management (APM), International Project Management Association (IPMA), and Australian institute of Project management (AIPM). These project management organizations in order to address the importance of project manager’s competency have developed their own standards. The purpose of this paper is to compare these existing project manager’s competency standards in order to identify the advantages and disadvantages of these standards to propose a comprehensive model based on this standards comparison and literature review. The findings of this research show that achieving competency is a continuous activity and competency requirements from one project to another project, and time to time varies. The proposed comprehensive model includes three main components of Job-related Competencies, Person-related Competencies and Contextual Competencies. The Job-related competencies discuss solely on job competency requirements. Person-related Competencies include two components of personal characteristics and input competencies.
