What does a Project Leader do?
A project leader plans, organises and monitors project processes. He steers and moderates the project team, paying attention to quality goals, target costs and delivery goals. He is also responsible for the technical requirements and their implementation. In the planning phase, he allocated tasks to employees, acts as a contact person when problems arise and checks the implementation of interim goals for correctness and quality. He identifies deviations from these and puts corrective measures in place. He also procures the required resources and works to prevent delivery bottlenecks and overcome staff implementation difficulties. Moreover, he is responsible for the input of the different sub-projects, which has to be ensured for the successful implementation of the project and its progress. He is the first contact person for the customer and colleagues when questions arise regarding the current project status. Another of his responsibilities is project reporting.
