Selecting project managers

an integrated list of predictors

The success of a project may be made more likely in having a qualified project manager. In an attempt to make it easier to select the best candidate for project manager, a profile of integrated requirements, with their associated predictors, was developed and formed into a model. A literature review revealed related articles on similar subjects. This review was used to create a list of specifications suitable for use in the selection process. A basic model framework was then created to streamline the process. The model consists of twenty-one predictors that are grouped into five sets. The five sets are:problem solving, administration, supervision and project team management, interpersonal relationships, and other personal qualities. The profile for selection is represented by the formula PERFORMANCE = ABILITIES x MOTIVATION x PERSONALITY. While there are some limitations to this method of selection process, it should help make the project manager selection process less arbitrary.
