Abstract—Although main project management institutes such as PMI, APM, IPMA, and AIPM have emphasized the importance of project managers’ competencies, still there is a need to address this issue to achieve a comprehensive framework which includes all required competencies. Besides, there is a need to introduce a tool which project managers can use to meet those competencies. This research aims to propose a comprehensive project managers’ competency framework and to introduce e-portfolio as a new online educational method to support project managers to improve their competencies. For first phase of study, based on comparison of existing project managers’ competency standards and literature review the framework including three main components of “Job-competencies”, “Person-competencies”, and “Contextual-competencies” is proposed. For second phase of study, the questionnaire distributed among professionals in senior executive level, manager level, and senior manager level, and also five industry sectors: Finance, Construction, Engineering Human resource, and Information Technology. The results show that for enhancing project managers’ competencies, e-portfolio supports such as knowledge sharing, stimulated virtual software, educational multimedia software, online standard accessibility, educational software, and online updated organizational policies and online bilateral relations among project managers and suppliers.
