IT project manager

Contributor(s): Rachel Lebeaux

An IT project manager is a professional charged with overseeing the process of planning, executing and delegating responsibilities around an organization's information technology (IT) pursuits and goals.

An IT project manager should be informed of business directives associated with specific initiatives and assign resources based on those goals. As project participants are often spread across different offices and teams, the role of the IT project manager is to ensure that projects are delivered smoothly on-time and on-budget with minimal unexpected stoppages in work.

In addition to assigning IT project managers, some organizations establish IT project management offices (PMOs) to guide the completion of large-scale initiatives.
