    Abstract

    There is still ambiguity surrounding the role of certain professions within the construction industry and the overlap of roles and responsibilities; the difference in terminology used to describe them means that the precise role of the Project Manager and associated roles/skills that are performed, are not well
    defined. Many authors have attempted to define and list the roles that a Project Manager should possess, although it can be argued that as yet, such a comprehensive list of roles/skills that makes a Project Manager competent does not exist. This research set out to investigate the roles/skills of Project Managers within a major contracting organisation in West Central Scotland, in the hope of establishing such a definitive list.
