Project manager’s skill
We usually state that a project managers skill should be a mile wide and an inch deep.
The project manager is responsible for motivating herself and the staff “team” to complete a given project on time and within budget. This individual needs to have and show a rekindling of spirit and a re dedication to the profession of construction project management.
As the project manager so very well knows, the responsibilities for the completion of any project are many, indeed, and considered by novices as awesome. For the benefit of those who may not be appreciative or cognizant of the heavy demands on a manager, we are listing below single thoughts that would apply to one’s duties, in order that they may be incorporated into one’s
mind in one sitting:
