Project Manager

Project Manager

The HR professional plays several roles in the business. Different roles may be more or less important depending on the HR and business agenda. It is rare for the HR professional to spend extended periods in one role. Rather they are likely to engage in a particular role to achieve a key objective, therefore flexibility is key. Their overall focus is on achieving the business strategy and goals. They will use their local HR plan and agenda to further this together with any corporate wide strategy initiatives, tailored to their business.

You may be required to undertake the project manager role in relation to either your own HR project such as a major restructure or launch of a new people initiative, or a business project which you are leading on behalf of the management team.  As project manager, your role is to lead the programme of work, manage the resources and ensure that the project objectives are clearly set out, and met. You may have responsibility for the budget and timeline for the project, and regular reporting of status and progress.  The best project managers achieve their objectives by working effectively with the entire project team and ensuring communication and involvement of wider stakeholder groups.
