Program-Ace provides high-quality software development services and delivers results on time and on budget thanks in large part to our management team.
Many customers query us about why they need a project manager and about his role in a software development process. Project manager is an essential part of a software development team organizing people and managing different tasks in order to reach a specific goal. Main focus of a PM is on managing people, however a good PM manages not only the team but also the scope, handles any issues that may arise and often remains your reliable and knowledgeable contact person during the whole process.
Project managers are leaders by nature who can organize work in a required direction. Program-Ace’ managers usually start by breaking large end-goals into smaller tasks and then set internal deadlines for completion of each of them.
1Managing the Team.
The most essential things for a well-run project are good coordination and communication between all parties involved. No matter how creative and productive the team members are; they all need direction. As a rule we develop projects that require participation of highly-skilled developers, business analysts, testers, graphic designers, and support team. The main task of a PM is to coordinate the work of all these resources, their tasks, and make sure the work is done at a high level and with minimum of time wasted.
2Managing the Project Scope.
Before we start developing a project we define the project scope, including tasks, resources, deadlines, etc. Another essential function of a PM is to control and manage the scope to ensure everything runs to plan to deliver a product with all predefined features and functionality on time and on budget.
No matter how well the team is organized and the scope is controlled, there are always some issues that arise during the development process and that need to be resolved. These issues may be related to the change of requirements, external vendor delays, payment issues, etc. These issues stand in the way of your project and need someone who will be authorized to solve them all to make sure your project development process goes smoothly. Identifying and handling issues is another critical function of a project manager.
