Over de functie
Project Leaders are given assignments by the (Senior) Project Manager or Development Manager. They draw up a schedule on the basis of the proposals worked out by the Architect, seek project manpower in consultation with group management, and do the costing for the project budget.
Project Leaders are confronted with a continuous flow of disturbing events that they have to handle, leading to decisions with conflicting effects. They are responsible for completion of the project. If faced with setbacks, conflicts of priority, or the threat of overspending the budget, they devise solutions and submit them to management.
