Project ManagerPittsburgh, PA

Duties and Responsibilities:
It starts with understanding the project goals and the players. You create a communication plan, make contact lists, and prepare schedules. In this “just-in-time” world, scheduling is very important.

Throughout the furniture manufacturing process, the project manager monitors the schedules for delays or changes. When the furniture ships, packing lists are verified with the order, assuring the installation team that everything is on the way. The project manager also supervises the installation, troubleshooting any problems that might arise.
