Project management involves the planning and organization of a company’s resources to move a specific task, event, or duty towards completion. It can involve a one-time project or an ongoing activity, and resources managed include personnel, finances, technology, and intellectual property.

What is Sizram’s Role on managing your project?

As of managing, we stand on the front lines of projects, defending the teams, clients, and projects from miscommunication, missed deadlines, scope creep, and any other failures. We champion the well-being of the people involved in the projects and look to make or facilitate strategic decisions that uphold the goals of the projects. As mentioned, our managerial role may differ slightly from place to place, but the basics of what we will do for a team are fairly consistent (though some may be less formal than others). Our role as a project manager involves many tasks and responsibilities including:

  • Traditional approaches
  • Agile methodologies
  • Change management methodologies
  • Process based methodologies
  • Planning and defining scope
  • Setting and managing expectations

Benefits of having a Project Manager for the Projects

Having a Project Manager on your team means that you’ve got a person dedicated to making sure that work is done on time and at the right time. That person is also looking to make sure that the team’s practices are running smoothly, and if they are not, they will be corrected through discussion. This is the kind of thing that makes teams happier, because they can focus on working hard and producing successful products.
