Every software product starts with a vision. That vision can be materialized with the support of a dedicated Project Manager (PM), oriented at making it real. The Project Manager makes sure that a software product is delivered within an agreed timeframe and in a certain budget. But the responsibilities don’t end just there. It is a multifaceted role that impacts the software product development project, the development team, the client and related processes in a number of ways. Read on to understand what a Project Manager can do for your team and your project.
No matter the software project type, the Project Manager is responsible for the coordination, implementation, management, control, and realization, aligned with strategy, commitments, and goals of the project. To do that, the PM needs tools to manage every part of the delivery process such as Asana, Trello or JIRA. What is more Project Manager needs a reliable team to delegate some of the responsibilities. The team that works with PM consists of tech and non-tech specialists. Depending on the project, PM may need the support of the Business Analyst, Scrum Muster, Line Manager, Tech Lead, Solution Architect, recruitment team, and many more.
