Why do I need a Project Manager
In a typical software projects development, failure is reported between 15% and 30% of the time, reality is that the only person on the project team who is actively looking out for your business’s budget and timeline is the project manager.
They care about being transparent and want to ensure that your hours and dollars are spent in the best way possible for your business.
You should appreciate your project manager; next time they mention that a task can’t be done in the allotted time frame, they’re giving you the most valuable thing you can have: the truth.
In digital projects, a lot of the recognition goes to the team members that produce the tangible work: UX, UI Designers, and the developers. The clients and their visitors are taken by a new website and credit is given to the production team.
So next time your digital project is completed to your satisfaction, take a moment and think if it would have been completed as smoothly without the time invested by your project manager. Would it have been completed at all or would you still be going over various designs and variables with the developer?
After successful delivery, we spend time following up with clients to get a sense of what their experience was like working with our team and we hear a lot of great things about the project team. “the designer was so great, he always had the users in mind,” or “the developer was awesome at understanding our process and being faithful to it,” or “the Q&A team was so diligent during the process that we had a smooth launch.”
Do you know who our clients appreciate the most? The project manager
