Project Management is the application of processes, skills, knowledge and tools to achieve the projects’ objectives. It is something that is needed and for the success of a project. A project manager, therefore, is the person in overall charge of the planning and execution of a project (something that is temporary with a defined beginning, middle and ending). It refers to someone who has a talent for being organised, efficient and meticulous. A project manager handles an entire project from conception to completion, and manages each step of the process to ensure that tasks are completed; deliverables and deadlines are met; and issues obstructing the finished project are removed and dealt with appropriately.
When you hire a Virtual Assistant as your Virtual Project Manager, you open yourself out to so many more outsourcing opportunities. Aside from managing the project a Virtual Project Manager/Virtual Assistant can assist with other duties, such as replying to emails, coordinating teams, providing customer support, and so on.
In short, a VA can handle all of the smaller tasks so you can see the bigger picture. Have you ever used a Virtual Project Manager? If so, what were your experiences? If not, do you think you could use one for a current or upcoming project?
