Project management

To build products efficiently, software development teams need the support of effective project and process management. Finding the best project management method is essential to streamlining team workflows, smoothly following product roadmaps, and staying on top of release schedules.

At Sunscrapers, we ensure that our teams are supported by battle-tested project management tactics like the agile methodology. Our experienced project managers act as process guardians, organizing teamwork and serving as the bridge between the client and the development team.

It’s smart to give project management some thought when launching a project. Here are the most important areas project management deals with: 

  • Planning – project managers prepare a blueprint for the entire project that defines its scope, allocates resources, sketches a timeline for product development, and delineates the plan for project execution.
  • Leadership and team building – a project manager is also responsible for assembling and leading the project team, which can consist of many different professionals: software developers, graphic designers, analysts, testers, and others. To do that, project managers need exceptional leadership and communication skills. 
  • Project execution – project managers are present at every stage of the project, supporting it in areas like team management and monitoring its progress by checking in with the team and creating status reports.
  • Time management – a project manager is also responsible for executing the project within the set timeframe and budget. That requires expertise in risk management and contingency planning to deal with roadblocks or changes that are bound to happen as the project evolves. 

The support of excellent project management is especially important in projects based on outsourcing where a remote team is involved in the development process.
