They can plan, implement, control and close projects, bringing strong change and improvement management skills.

Project management roles

The Project Manager leads a temporary organisation towards project goals and manages the project in terms of scope, time, costs, risks and quality. A Project Manager defines the work in the project and takes full accountability for the planning, execution and conclusion of a project assignment. By monitoring, controlling and reporting progress according to applicable process, the Project Manager ensures that the project delivers a beneficial result according to a project assignment and to the highest standards of customer satisfaction. Here’s a comment from one of our employees:


“I feel that my managers are constantly encouraging me to take on greater responsibilities and challenges. Moving outside of my comfort zone has allowed me to grow much faster on a personal level and in my role as Project Manager. Another great source for my development has proven to be all the skilled and highly motivated members of my project. It is really fun to work together with them and it gives me tons of energy every day.”
