Description The role of the project manager is one of the most challenging jobs in any organization because it requires a broad understanding of several areas that need to be coordinated and require interpersonal skills. The objective of the work is to define the main competences that must be possessed by the project managers in the construction industry, and also to present how they could develop them. In order to comply with this, a critical analysis was carried out that includes several studies of experts, and institutions dedicated to this area of engineering. This study concludes that the project manager must have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to handle the specific technical aspects, scope, costs, timing and interrelationship, aligned with the objectives, teamwork and stakeholders, among others. All this in a changing, diverse and transversal environment, generating uncertainty and conflicts to be resolved competently
El rol del director de proyectos es uno de los trabajos más desafiantes en cualquier organización, porque requiere una amplia comprensión sobre varias áreas que deben estar coordinadas y sobre las que se requieren habilidades interpersonales. El objetivo del trabajo es definir las principales competencias que deben poseer los directores de proyectos en la industria de la construcción, y además presentar cómo éstos podrían desarrollarlas. Para cumplir con éste, se realizó un análisis crítico que incluye diversos estudios de expertos, e instituciones dedicadas a esta área de la ingeniería. De este estudio se concluye que el director de proyectos debe poseer conocimientos, habilidades y actitudes para manejar los aspectos técnicos específicos, el alcance, los costos, los tiempos y la interrelación, alineada con los objetivos, del equipo de trabajo y de los stakeholders, entre otros. Todo ello en un ambiente cambiante, diverso y transversal, generador de incertidumbre y de conflictos a solucionar de forma competente
