The quest to find the superior project manager

the Fortune 500 Project Management Benchmarking Forum defines competencies

This article overviews a study by the Fortune 500 Project Management Benchmarking Forum designed to identify, validate, and weight factors and predictors of project manager competency. The superior project manager excels in four broad competency areas: character and traits; professionalism (consisting of leadership and management capabilities); project skills grounded in experience; and background. Among the expected outcomes of the study are a handbook of accepted and validated competencies, recommendations for the PMI Certification Committee, and a generalized portrait of the superior project manager.
