Abstract: Project outcomes in Ghana have been adjudged to be poor as a result of how projects are managed, the form project management takes, and the project management approaches used. Low project management expertise has been identified as a contributory factor to how projects have been managed in Ghana. In the current study, the author adopted an exploratory research design approach to investigate project management competency in Ghana, using a purposively selected sample of 200 managers. Competency scores were used to determine organizational project management competency levels. Results showed that Ghanaian managers possess varying degrees of project integration, human resource, communication, quality, risk, and scope management competencies. The study recommends the systematic and deliberate improvement of project management competencies in order to increase the rate of project success in Ghana.
