In project management, scope, cost and time are closely linked and critical to a project’s success. Project managers generally plan, coordinate, implement and finalize projects according to specifications and deadlines, while keeping the project within budget. Project managers are responsible for all aspects of a time-limited, specific business initiative.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of information technology managers is expected to increase by 15 percent through 2022, which is faster than average for all occupations.
