What does a project manager do?

Project Management across Scotland

The project manager's role in a nutshell is to take overall responsibility for the successful planning, execution, monitoring, control and delivery of a project.
 
An effective project manager must have a combination of skills and experience, including an ability to ask the right questions and make difficult decisions, detect unstated assumptions and resolve conflicts, keep focused on the end goal at all times, as well as have more general management and communication skills. He or she must also be able to understand and quantify risk, as well as how the various risks and liabilities they are presented with might affect their project for better or for worse.
 
All projects are carried out under constraints, traditionally cost, time and scope. These three important factors, commonly called the triple constraint, are often represented as a triangle. More recently the triangle has given way to a project management diamond, with cost, time, scope and quality the four vertices with customer expectations as central. It is a project manager’s responsibility to find a successful balance between all constraints and deliver a finished product that satisfies all stakeholders.
 
Why would I need a project manager?
Project managers are used in all industries, especially when implementing something new, large or which involves a great deal of users or significant change. Specialist software exists to help project managers keep track of costs, deadlines, uncompleted tasks and other essential information. 
 
In the property industry, a project manager might oversee the building of new flats or the conversion of a barn into housing. The project management service from the project management specialists in Dundee is ideal for someone wishing to take on a construction project and manage it themselves. He or she could be a first-time developer who has bought a large house to renovate and wishes to use and manage particular craftsmen, or an individual building their own dream home. A typical user of our project management service might also be an experienced builder who can’t be on site in person all the time, or a private individual wanting help to plan, track and get advice on renovations in their own home.
