Abstract: Evaluation of the performance level of key project management (PM) competencies of the various project teams is perceived as a recourse necessary for identifying potentially crucial and practical training needs of project team participants in PM practice. However, notable studies in this domain have primarily focused on the identification of critical PM competencies of project managers and engineers of the project team neglecting the architect who are equally important participants of construction project teams. This study focused on assessing the performance level of the critical PM competencies of the architect as a key team participant in project delivery. A quantitative method design was adopted involving a structured questionnaire survey of Ghanaian construction professionals who were selected through snow balling sampling. The data elicited were analysed using mean scores, Kruskal-Wallis test and gap analysis. The findings revealed that, architects show worse performance on seven critical competencies. The practical implication of the findings is that the disposition of architects PM behaviours can be ascertained as this can lend credence to legitimising corrective action through any potential continuing professional development programme and training in PM for architects in the Ghanaian construction industry.
