Establishing and maintaining transparency during a project gives everyone involved the power and motivation to do their best work.
Projects have a lot of moving parts: schedules, requirements, resources, budgets, etc. They all require attention and a project manager can help to keep it all under control.
Managing projects is more than scheduling meetings and checking things off of a task list. Effective project management requires being able to lead a team of people towards a common goal. A good project manager can build trusting relationships with their team and effectively resolve conflicts. They recognize the needs of the team members and make an effort to meet those needs.
