    Abstract

    While research has shed considerable light on the organizational-level maturity of PSM organizations, the individual competencies of PSM, especially in light of current developments in the workplace such as digitization, have received relatively less attention. Firstly, this paper identifies the necessary competencies required by PSM practitioners, both currently and in the future. Secondly, it adopts a Knowledge-Based View (KBV), differentiating PSM competencies as either explicit (‘know-what’ and codifiable) or tacit (‘know-how’ and difficult to articulate). Methodologically, it engages in theory-elaboration, basing itself on KBV and following a case study approach with 16 companies and a total of 46 interviewees.
