Web project managers come in all shapes and sizes. Some have project manager written on their business cards. Many don't. In fact, many don't have business cards at all. Most people managing web projects today didn't study project management at university. Nonetheless, project management sounds like a daunting task. Many people think of project management as an annoying overhead cost. In fact, I think there might be a few project budgets out there that label all of their project management time as ‘annoying overhead’. And while time spent managing is not time spent designing, coding or deploying websites, it is not time wasted either. Good project management is all about making sure that you and your team have a better time doing something that you love. If you are a football player, your coach is not an annoying overhead to the discipline of playing football. The coach helps you train, strategise and execute winning plays. It's the same with a good project manager. The person doing the project manager’s job is making sure that you are at the top of your game, meeting yourgoals and conserving your resources for those crucial plays in the second half.
