The project manager of a design project is like a ship’s captain.
They are in charge of steering the entire project, start to finish, and keeping it on course until it reaches its final destination. Without the “captain,” the project will likely flounder and fail.
The project manager is perhaps the most crucial member for any project, because they are in charge of balancing cost, time, and quality across the entire team and the whole timeline of the project.
Depending on the individual project and the structure of the office, a project manager could be:
- The principal of a design firm
- The interior designer
- A designated professional project manager (within the office or hired from outside)
To pass the IDPX, you’ll need to learn about project management, including planning, scheduling, monitoring, coordinating, directing, documenting, closing out the project, and post-occupancy follow-up. You can delve deeper into the details of project management by checking out our post, How to Run an Interior Design Project and Keep on Course. We'll cover this and more in the Qpractice Premium Access study plan.
