A project manager is the person who has the overall responsibility for the successful planning and execution of a project.  This involves a continuous process of integration, coordinating and directing of all project elements within the life cycle of the project.

Projects are never the same and can range from simple to complex and small to large.  The attributes of the project will determine the level of competency of the project manager to ensure the satisfactory management of the project.

  • Challenge yourself and inspire others to deliver exceptional performance

  • Take personal responsibility to help your colleagues be the best they can be

  • Take ownership of collective decisions. Support decisions made by team members to whom tasks are delegated
  • Collaborate with colleagues to solve problems. Involve people in your team from diverse backgrounds to enhance creativity and the quality of decisions
