What is a Project Manager?

Employed in many different types of business, Project Managers are tasked with guiding a defined project from inception to completion. Depending on the industry these projects might include researching and developing new products, creating software, establishing a website or the design and/or construction of a building.

The Project Manager holds full responsibility for the success or failure of a project, although they are rarely directly involved in the specific jobs required to complete it. Overseeing a team of staff and contractors, the Project Manager’s focus is on planning and execution.
