Abstract [en]

Our starting point has been to examine how a project manager without knowledge of the industry is able to plan a project. And also which difficulties that may arise. A qualitative study was conducted at project managers who worked in the construction industry and events industry. Seven interviews were conducted, four in the construction sector and three in the events industry. Respondents are active as project manager in Värmland and Närkes counties. Sixteen job advertisements were studied, including eight searched a project manager in the construction industry and eight in the events industry. We wanted using the job advertisements to study which education, work experience and personal qualities that are in demand in these two sectors. The results show that project managers without knowledge of the industry can plan a project under certain conditions.
