By Marcelo Garza on Sep 18, 2020 10:15:00 AM

Project managers have a wide range of responsibilities when working on a project: they are in charge of planning the project, creating a schedule and timeline, executing each phase, managing budgets, serving as the liaison among all stakeholders, and also troubleshooting and maintenance in addition to other activities.
