What is a Project Manager

A project manager is the person in charge of strategic and tactical planning; as well as the supervision and execution of complex projects; with the objective of achieving the desired results in an effective and efficient manner.

What are the responsibilities of a Project Manager and why do I need one?

1. Strategic Planning

The Project Manager develops a detailed strategy for the project; defining objectives; deadlines; resources; and budgets necessary for its successful execution.

2. Organization and Coordination

This professional manages the allocation of tasks and resources; ensuring that each team member understands his or her role and responsibilities and that the workflow is smooth and efficient.

The Project Manager assumes a series of crucial responsibilities; and the presence of his or her support is fundamental since his or her intervention can be decisive in defining the successful or unsuccessful outcome of a project.


If the execution of a project is carried out by a Project Manager; it will give you the ability to free yourself from operational tasks and constant communication with the project development team. This allows you to devote your attention and focus to your day-to-day responsibilities without deviating from your daily tasks.
