A study of the competencies of Abu-Dhabi Police’s (ADP’s) project managers and the associated impact of the organization’s values was conducted. This paper draws from the study to report on the relationship between the relative attainment of ADP’s 5 values and 15 competencies by their project managers. Following an in-depth literature review, the need for studying the connection between the values and competencies was established. A quantitative approach was adopted for studying the connections where a questionnaire was used to collect data from both project managers and managers who are currently working with ADP. 157 questionnaires were distributed to the potential respondents and 71 completed responses were obtained, representing a response rate of 45%. The data collected was analyzed using ordinal regression analysis which indicated how different ADP values affect the project managers’ competencies varyingly. For example, the ADP value of ‘Integrity and honesty’ was found to have a higher impact on 5 of their project managers’ competencies which are: integration management, scope management, time management, action and achieving, and leadership. Similar connections between the other values and some of the competencies were established.
