The project length was high compared to other disciplines at 52 working days on average. The top 10% of project length was over six months (129 working days) – the highest average amongst all disciplines. This will be explained by the complexity of certain projects demanding a longer involvement for freelancers.
There are several reasons why now might be the time to hire a project manager freelancer. This includes:
Delivery — Hiring a project manager will help ensure you deliver on a project goal in a timely fashion. The project manager takes into consideration all constraints such as scope, schedule, and budget, and as part of the development process, validates each of these constraints from time to time and manages these entities to deliver a quality product.
Skills/knowledge — Project managers draw on past successes and failures to make sure past mistakes won’t happen on your project. They know what tools they need to use to keep the project organised and on track. Not only are they able to keep the key goal at the forefront of the project, they’re able to focus on the data to day tasks.
Communication —The project manager ensures constant communication among all of the project stakeholders. They will relay information in a more efficient and transparent way, keeping to the facts, to ensure the project keeps moving forward.
Results Driven —Projects will encounter bumps that will impact timelines and budgets. Having a project manager on board will ensure you’re informed of any changes immediately and solutions to get back on track.
