The first timeshare resorts were created in the 1960s. Since then, the concept of vacation timesharing has spread around the world. Despite significant growth in the last 30 years, little academic research exists concerning the competencies required to manage timeshare resorts. This study provides new perspective on competency domain clusters within the timeshare industry. Three hundred thirty one property-level timeshare managers were asked to rate the importance and frequency of use of each competency domain cluster. The data gathered from the survey reveals a relationship between the types of resort a manager manages and the importance and frequency ratings of each competency's domain cluster. Further, a surprising result was the discovery of a lack of industry certification among the respondents. These results may be useful in training and development strategies for timeshare resort managers.
