To define a project manager it would be the person who leads a project to completion. Project Manager tasks include but not limited to planning, executing and closing of a project while managing resources and scope of the project. A projects success is measured against its objectives outlined before the project is started. It is the project managers responsibility to ensure the objectives are obtainable against time, scope and cost.

The project manager is also expected to ensure the objectives aren’t changed during the project without modifying the time, scope and cost of the project. In some organizations projects are not assigned official project managers and the team leads or even executives/engineers have to manage the project within their area of expertise. Examples of this would be business analyst creating charter document, developer managing development or QA manage testing and releasing. This experience can be used when applying for PMP® certification.
