Project manager profile characterization in the construction sector in Bogotá, Colombia

Within the Colombian academic and entrepreneurial media, special importance is granted to education and training in the fields of project development and project management because of the clear recognition of their relevance to the country's human, economic, and social development as well as the influence of those fields in successful project execution. This paper aims to describe and evaluate the characteristics (educational background, training, skills, and experience) that make up the project manager profile in the construction sector in Bogota, Colombia. The focus of the study was mainly the following subsectors: the construction of residential buildings, construction of non-residential buildings, and construction of civil engineering works (housing, infrastructure, and roads). It is based on a project management literature review, expert interviews, and surveys with a group of project managers in the construction sector, and comparisons between them.
