The project director of an information technology team is responsible for managing a project at the strategic level. The project director is typically the project's point person, managing resources and overseeing finances to ensure that the project progresses on time and on budget. The director reviews regular progress reports and makes staffing, financial, or other adjustments to align the developing project with broader outcome goals. A project director generally oversees a team of project managers and project teams.
A bachelor's degree in computer science, information technology management, or management information systems is the standard minimum degree for a senior project management career. Project directors often advance into the role from a project manager position, armed with an MBA degree in information technology and/or a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. Those who advance into this senior project management position can earn six figures and enjoy a leadership position.
