Resumo

Resumo Projetos fazem parte das atividades organizacionais e têm impacto direto nos resultados e no desempenho das organizações. A melhoria no desempenho da Gestão dos Projetos pode trazer efeitos positivos para as organizações. O Gerente de Projetos, como responsável final pelos resultados dos projetos, tem em suas características pessoais fatores que podem impactar o Desempenho dos Projetos. Este estudo teve como objetivo, analisar as características pessoais do Gerente de Projetos em relação a seus efeitos no Desempenho dos Projetos, através de uma pesquisa empírica com 244 gerentes de projetos. Os resultados mostraram que Habilidades, Conhecimentos e Atitudes afetam diretamente o Desempenho dos Projetos e que os Traços de Personalidade não têm efeito direto, porém indireto, por afetarem as Atitudes. Os resultados ainda mostraram que a certificação em Gestão de Projetos não impacta diretamente o Desempenho dos Projetos, mas tem um efeito moderador nas relações entre Habilidades e Conhecimentos do Gerente de Projetos e o Desempenho da Gestão do Projeto.

Abstract

Abstract Projects form part of organizational activities and have a direct impact on the organization's results and performance. Improving project management performance can have a positive effect on an organization. Being ultimately responsible for project results, the project manager has factors within its personal characteristics that may affect project performance. The purpose of this study is to analyse the project manager's personal characteristics in relation to its effects on project performance using an empirical survey of 244 project managers. The results show that skills, knowledge and attitudes directly affect project performance and that personality traits do not have direct effects, but indirectly affect attitudes. The results also show that certification in project management does not directly affect project performance but has a moderating effect on the relationship between the project manager's skills and knowledge and project management performance.
