The accomplished PM is responsible for leading, staffing, and managing all aspects of the project. This includes the work of the entire project team and the work performed by all administrative, engineering, and construction disciplines even if the PM isn’t specifically trained in the technical aspects of the other disciplines. It also includes the extremely important aspects of client relations.  It is the project manager who is charged with the responsibility to deliver the service to the client. In this course we will touch upon the different phases leading to the foundation of the project and project features the project manager must control for in order to see the project come to a successful close.

  • List the items to be covered in the project proposal process.
