A Project Manager takes on the responsibility of helping teams plan and execute projects to achieve business goals. Depending upon the organization and industry that could mean everything from orchestrating a multi-year construction project to helping teams build the next unmanned spacecraft or hot new software product.
Many project managers start their careers at consulting firms where they are trained in one of many project management methodologies (Waterfall, Agile, XP, Six Sigma, etc.). Others get their start by working within project teams and move into a new role. Successful project managers are detailed oriented and work well with a group of people who have a wide variety of skills and diverse backgrounds. They are typically responsible for creating a project plan, tracking a team's progress against that plan, communicating with stakeholders, and removing any barriers that might prevent a team for being successful.See Job Listings Get Job Alerts
