Project Manager: A Professional Who Wear Many Hats

Postby dhaughey » Wed 15 Aug 2018 1:07 pm

If you are somebody that thrives on responsibility and enjoys getting their hands dirty across many different job roles, functions and departments, project manager might be an excellent career choice for you. Here are a few of the hats worn by a project manager:

  • Team Leader
  • Planner
  • Problem Solver
  • Excellent Communicator
  • Secretary
  • Team Builder
  • Agony Aunt/Uncle
  • Chairperson
  • Firefighter
  • Negotiator
  • Event Planner
  • Budget Manager
  • Coach
  • Timekeeper
  • Mediator
  • Crisis Manager
  • Sales Person
  • Influencer
  • QA Manager

Some may describe the role as a "jack-of-all-trades", but this does the project manager a disservice. Project managers are skilled individuals, able to combine their skills to deliver a define outcome to the benefit of their organisation.

Feel free to suggest any roles (or hats) I may have missed.
