Summary:

To be an effective project manager, one must be prepared to establish a working structure, a format of proven management principles that support the philosophy of the company they serve. A system that will work best has to be designed and supported from within, to be truly effective.

The project manager must prepare a reasonable plan of action for building the project, by understanding the estimate, collecting data from subcontractors, outlining the scope of work and aggressively purchasing the trades, establishing the cost control measures that best assist in accomplishing one’s goals. One should monitor job progress in a timely manner, and report findings regularly to all involved participants. If problems occur, the project manager must take immediate action to identify the cause and effect, report their findings as specified, and
take the necessary action to correct the problem.

The project manager’s chances for success will be greatly improved if the principles, which govern the project manager’s activities, are adhered to. Exactness is not always attainable, but the ability to plan, track and execute the project is.

The project manager needs to draft a schedule that best depicts the data gathered from the estimate and the subcontractors. They should discuss the project estimate with the estimator and share the schedule creation with the superintendent. The more tasks listed on the schedule the greater the control of the progress of the project. This is a definite benefit to the project manager. Using the estimate and the purchasing opportunities they will create the project cost controls, formulating the working budget. With proficiency and experience projecting the outcome of your project can be done with reasonable success on day one.

The project manager is the leader, “Captain of his Ship”, in control of activities, aggressively pursuing the plan of action, making informed decision and avoiding the consequences of reacting to issues that may be avoided through the active, aggressive approach style of management. The project manager maps out their course of action, monitors its progress, and corrects where necessary. With timely knowledge of any aberrations, the project manager will be in the position to administer the project rather than be manipulated by the woes of inaction
