A Growing Profession
As company executives and entrepreneurs deal with the daily responsibilities of managing the business, the importance of hiring dedicated project managers to oversee efforts from conception to completion is becoming a fast-growing field.
The Project Management Institute estimates 15.7 million new project management jobs globally by 2020.
Are you prepared to meet the complex logistical and technical requirements that many of today's projects demand?
What is a Project Manager?
An effective project manager oversees projects from the planning stage to implementation, and through testing and reporting. They ensure that projects are carried out on time, on budget, and with minimal disruption to the rest of the business. A project manager will identify and detail activities required in each phase of a project and lead teams with staff members across company departments to carry out each phase.
Project managers are utilized in a variety of different fields – from information technology and healthcare to engineering and construction.
Some examples of what project managers can do:
- Launch a new product
- Standardize procedures across a company
- Roll out a new brand
