What a Project Manager Does?
Since project management is at its core a process of leading a team of people to perform their best in support of a common goal, leadership is among the most important thing he/she does. The manager brings their leadership and experience to the owner’s team to help avoid problems. The manager organizes and coordinates the work of the many participants, making their work more efficient. The manager helps the team plan the project, documents that plan, and then oversees its members while they execute the plan. He/She manages the schedule, ensuring each team member's efforts are as productive and efficient as possible; he/she monitors spending against the budget, and forecasts the cost of the uncompleted work to anticipate cost problems; and he/she keeps the owner's team informed on progress and issues. He/She generally helps each team member do his or her job well, steering them in the right direction.
