Here we’re not talking primarily of project managers, but of people who will support those managing projects. These are all typically internal appointments (people who already work for the company). Depending on the workload, these may be part time roles at first.
There are a number of considerations in choosing this key person in the organisation’s Project Management setup. We often identify potential candidates during the earlier stages of training (e.g. a workshop for the whole team).
Configuration manager or document control officer
We also help you identify someone to take control of the configuration management for projects. This person may need to do the same for operations (i.e. ‘business as usual’ processes).
Other initial Project Management roles may include that of project administrator, project management office manager and project site monitor.
