:: What is the role of Project Manager in IT Industry?

Hmm, I really don’t want to talk about this matter since it’s very common topic that even ordinary people already knew about it. But since I already jump into another
company in which I realized that there’s a lot of unexpected hole while handling a medium-size project (for me is not worth at all!).

So, here I listed out the very basic role for project manager.


These 3 activities are the very basic and compulsory activities in order to fulfill the identified objectives, talking about the identified objectives, the PM should have a very
clear view of what’s the scope, limit, constraint about the project he/she’s going handle.

Sometimes, most of the project manager in Malaysia tend to follows all the client’s
need without having a proper documentation like if the client’s want to change anything that’s already confirm, the project manager should send the client a proper document
such as “Change Request Form” which include all the cost that should be borned by the client.

Project Manager should also have a very good knowledge in techical, theorical and managerial skill to satisfy the project requirement. and please don’t depends to much on
your team leader! He/She must have the abilities to coordinates and intergrates team and individual efforts so that a professional team can be build..

Last but not least, here is a checklist I gained from a book I bought “IT Project Management” written by “Kathy Schwalbe”
