The PM sits between the client and the development team, and owns the project plan.

Project success is not only measured with project KPIs but also how successful it is to roll onto continuous managed service agreements with clients.

    2. Great looking reporting to all stakeholders in various levels of detail with graphs, flows etc. – 100% accurate, on-time, right level of detail, great forma/design

Competencies
