Analysis of Construction Manager Competencies For Quality Management
A construction manager (CM) in the construction industry performs construction management work with
stakeholders and is involved in each stage of the construction project life cycle. As such, the competency of a construction
manager is an important factor that directly affects the success of the construction work.
In Korea, construction manager competencies are evaluated thru a qualification-oriented process. A limitation of this approach
is that it only measures knowledge. Thus, this criteria is operated apart from asking about the completeness of a person’s skill
sets or job experience as it applies to construction management. Therefore, in order to ensure that the production process
meets the required standards, it is necessary to introduce a rating system to evaluate the competency of a construction
In this study evaluates the competency level of a construction manager through these elements. Current competencies
evaluation methods are utilized to analyze the relation between competency level and the identified elements (years of
experience, education and license) of the construction managers through survey analysis. The results of this paper may help
in the development of a competency management system for construction managers.
