Project Manager Jobs in Illinois

Organize and direct information technology (IT) teams. Project managers create schedules for new design/development initiatives which include predicted dates for reaching major milestones. They compare these timelines to current progress and verify that products/tasks remain on track for timely completion.

Project managers may also be involved with strategic planning endeavors, especially resource allocation, that affect their departments. They collaborate with higher management to structure IT teams’ workflow and objectives, making sure that the group functions as effectively and efficiently as possible.
