Abstract

This report aims to answer the question of whether project managers employed on Urban Regeneration projects require different key skills from projects working on traditional commercial projects. The paper's hypothesis predicts that there is a continual set of core competencies project managers should possess independeruof the type of project they are working on. However project managers working on urban regeneration projects require additional skills in stakeholder management. The project answers this question by collating literature on the subject of traditional project management skills and comparing these findings with primary data collected from interviewing project managers of urban regeneration projects. By conducting this research the aim is to identify a need for urban regeneration projects to seek out project managers who possess these additional skills with a view to increasing the success of managing urban regeneration projects.
