Abstract

To be effective in leading multiple simultaneous projects in high-velocity industries, this study proposes a list of competencies that multiple-project managers should possess organized as a competency model for effectiveness in managing multiple projects. Among other competencies, the competencies that are unique to multiple-project managers are organizational experience, interdependency management, multitasking, simultaneous team management, and management of interproject process. This finding helps raise awareness in the project management community regarding the differences between the competencies of single-project managers and those of multiple-project managers. Besides the list of competencies, this study extends its contribution by presenting propositions for future research.
