Abstract

The increasing use of project management across all sectors has had a significant impact on management and management structures. For employee retention and optimum organisational performance it is no longer advisable to promote individuals based on a traditional management model. This paper seeks to provide an objective method for competency identification and individualised career development founded on a project based management model that recognises the fundamental shift in strategic awareness. Via the establishment of a comprehensive competency model, the proposed framework considers the impact of mental preference on job satisfaction, capability and succession planning and builds on the innate nature of competency and the possibility that some individuals are simply born to manage projects.
