The CDP is under the responsibility of a project manager. He has several roles within a company such as controller, designer, expert, coach, or speaker. It is on him or her that the entire responsibility for the success of a project rests.
The project manager must know how to manage several decisive points. As soon as the project, the schedule and the budget are defined, the project manager can take action. His task will then be to manage and control the work effectively. Indeed, if there is the slightest problem, the project manager is held responsible. He therefore has a decisive role within a company. He has to take charge of the distribution of resources, such as labor, or equipment, in order to find an optimal solution involving the least possible cost for the project, while respecting the specifications. He must therefore follow and manage a project from its conception to its completion. Information systems must be beyond reproach.
However, he must not forget to take into account the customer's needs. Indeed, the project manager must respect the specifications, but also the level of quality that has been previously requested by the customer. Then, it is also up to him to guarantee the profitability of the projects he manages. There are therefore various tasks in which he must be involved such as negotiations with suppliers, responding to calls for tenders, checking contract commitment levels etc.
The project manager must have multiple skills because he represents projects within his company, but also externally. Among the required skills, you will find: to know how to be a good speaker, to know how to manage a team, a good stress management, and to have excellent communication skills. The job also requires computer skills. The good management of a project is based on these criteria.
