Project Manager

Trainingpros L&Amp;D Project Manager Consultant Role

Have you ever had to find a way to lead a large, fast-paced project while still performing your normal full-time job? Have you ever been a part of a project that was poorly defined, poorly run, and went over budget for both time and money? A dedicated professional project manager can help you avoid both situations. 

A Project Manager is organized, a great communicator, a natural planner, a strong team leader, and has excellent strategic and critical thinking skills.   

What does an L&D Project Manager do?

A Project Manager takes responsibility for the planning, budgeting, monitoring, and reporting of one or more projects. The Project Manager acts as the communication link between the stakeholders of the project and employees or contractors that are working on the project. The Project Manager enables the team to keep the project running on time and meet the expectations of the stakeholder. 

What Skills Does an L&D Project Manager Need?

Project Managers have strong organizational skills, communication, team management, budgeting, prioritization skills, and are detail oriented. Some things Project Managers regularly do as part of their job include: 

  • Plan the overall project from initial feasibility to the detailed project plan. 
  • Ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget. 
  • Manage the relationships between stakeholders and project team members. 
  • Perform risk management. 
  • Create and execute a project communication plan. 
  • Manage the scope of the project. 

When you have a large project that involves large budgets and multiple resources, a project manager can ensure that the project is completed on time and on budget while meeting the stakeholders’ requirements.
