The Project Manager is the person responsible for the day-to-day management of the project. The Project Manager will be involved in defining the project with the Sponsor and then ensures that the project is delivered on time, to budget and to the required quality (as defined by the acceptance criteria agreed by the users represented by the Senior User).
He/she ensures the project is effectively resourced and manages relationships with a wide range of groups (including all project contributors).
The Project Manager will agree, manage, and monitor against, the project plan, allocating work packages to individuals within the project team for completion. He/she is also responsible for managing the work of consultants, vendors and other external suppliers, allocating and utilising resources in an efficient manner and maintaining a co-operative, motivated and successful team. He/she will report to the Sponsor and Project Board at agreed intervals and will keep records and logs of the project’s risks, issues, progress and achievements.
