The IT Project Manager, Sr. plans and coordinates all aspects of IT specific projects from initiation to delivery.

The role also includes acquiring resources and coordinating efforts of team members and third-party contractors or consultants to deliver projects according to the established project plan. This role defines the project's objectives and ensures delivery of quality. What distinguishes the Senior level is that projects for this role are typically larger and more complex than for non-Sr. Project Managers. This is a fully seasoned professional level capable of independently carrying out most assignments. This level would be attainable by multiple incumbents in a work group (not necessarily by all) but would not be an 'automatic' promotional level.
