Summary of Job Description

Project Managers apply a wide range of specialized knowledge, skills, tools, and
techniques to direct and coordinate human and material resources at all phases of a project -- origination, initiation, planning, execution and control, and closeout. A project is a temporary effort with defined objectives and results undertaken to develop, modify, or enhance a product, service or system; it has a specific beginning and end date. Project Managers balance competing demands and mitigate risks to ensure the delivery of an acceptable product to stakeholders and the project sponsor that is within budget,scope, time and quality standards.

As a Project Manager 5, you would direct a moderate size PMO, which has significant authority over projects or may directly manage projects. The PMO may be enterprise-wide,
overseeing all types of projects, not those related specifically to one area (e.g.,
engineering, information technology). The incumbent directs complex projects in a cross-functional environment. These projects may be internal and/or external; have scope that may extend beyond the organizationís boundaries and deliverables that may be new and unproven and thus have high risk; and have teams from different organizations and agencies.
