Abstract [en]

Many descriptions are available about the qualifications IT project managers are supposed to hold in order to be fully eligible and fit for employment. Sometimes these knowledge demands are apprehended as scary in a way that actually reject people from taking on a journey for such a job career. This research concerns how IT project managers in Swedish public authorities regard the demands on their profession; 46 questions regarding these matters are answered (survey 2016) by 82 individuals. The four most prominent requirements turned out to be: 1) experience from project management, 2) self-sufficiency 3a) being social, and on shared third place 3b) being co-operative. The three demands counted from the bottom ranking, concerned holding project management certifications. The findings are useful for practice because it could play down excessively described expectations and put the light on highly relevant requirements instead. For research, the findings provide input to further research.
