WHAT DOES A PROJECT MANAGER DO?

A project manager oversees entire projects within an organization. This includes planning, organizing, and directing the entire project. Project managers ensure that the projects are completed on time and within budget.

Project managers work as the connection point between upper management and the stakeholders involved and the teams who are responsible for the execution of the project. They also work as the connection point between the various teams working on the project. 

WHERE DOES A PROJECT MANAGER WORK?

Project managers can work across a variety of industries including construction, engineering, computer systems, architecture, and a variety of business fields. Because of this wide variety of industries, a project manager’s work environment can be dependent on the field. 

Many project managers work remotely or in a traditional office environment. Others may work onsite for projects while still having an office location if needed.
