What is a Project Manager?
A project manager is the person responsible and accountable for accomplishing the stated project objectives. Key project management responsibilities include creating clear and attainable project objectives, building the project requirements, and managing the triple constraint for projects.
The project manager is often required to perform a juggling act, balancing what the customer wants, and needs with what the team can provide in a particular time frame and with a particular budget. A successful project manager has a hodgepodge of skills and continues learning.
Key skills include:
- Influence and persuasion
- Project management
- Time management
- Stress and anger management
Although you do need project management skills to be a project manager, you don’t need to be a project manager to use project management skills. You will find uses for most of these tools in your day-to-day life, both personal and professional.
