Many positions related to the field of project management are available in Québec. The hierarchical level and title depend on the level of responsibility and scope or importance of the project. They also depend on the "typical career path” within each company. We can find, for example :
Project Manager: One normally responsible for organizing and ensuring a smooth undertaking of a project from start to finish (costs/budget, schedule, specifications, quality, etc.).
Project Lead: One who leads a project, often under the responsibility of a project coordinator.
Project Coordinator: Responsible for managing the small projects. Often assists a project director.
Project Director: The professional who leads a large-scale project as opposed to a project leader. He pilots the project, anticipates the impacts, drives change, arbitrates decisions and ensures communication. Often supported by a project management team.
Project Controller (or PCO, acronym of Project Control Officer): One responsible for planning, updating and controlling projects. Reports on the status of the project. Often the co-pilot of the project.
Note: nowadays in large corporations, we find positions related to project portfolio, where the mandated professional has the responsibility to manage a set of projects, often related to the strategic plan of the company.
The more you advance in your own project management career, the more your interpersonal skills will be sought. So keep this in mind when looking for skills improvement courses or a new positions.
