Abstract [en]

Successful organisations perform more and more of their work in projects that are temporary organisations led by project managers. Those organisations are dependent on their core competences and their development. The fact that the Human Resource Management, HRM, competence practices, in most cases, are not formally integrated into project management practices raises questions regarding the organisation’s long-term competence management.

The result of the present explorative study, which is based on Swedish companies with more than 250 employees, shows that the degree of involvement of the project manager in HRM competence management is low. The implications of the impact on the organisation’s long-term competence goal and the desired situation are also discussed.
