Project Manager’s Competency to Improve R&D Project Performance: Mediating Effect of Team Commitment and Moderating Effect of Project Type

Li-Ren Yang and Yueh-Hua Lee
Abstract— The primary purpose of this study was to examine the mediating effect of team commitment and moderating effect of project type on the relationship between leadership competency and research and development (R&D) project performance. To address the primary aim, a survey was used to measure the project manager’s competency, team commitment, and the performance of R&D projects in the Taiwanese high-tech industry. These analyses suggest that team commitment may mediate the effect of leadership competency on R&D project performance. The findings also indicate that project complexity and team size have a moderating effect on the relationship between leadership competency and R&D project success.

Index Terms— Project manager, leadership competence, team commitment, project performance, research and development.
