A project manager is a manager in charge of administering a project. Project Management responsibilities include creating clear and attainable project objectives, building the project requirements, and managing the triple constraint for projects: cost, time, and scope.
PM uses cross-functional teams to assist in the process of planning, organizing, securing, leading, delegating, and controlling of resources to achieve specific goals for a finite objective. A project manager is often also a client representative and has to determine and implement the exact needs of a client, based on knowledge of the firm they are representing.
