A project manager’s tasks vary depending on the industry. Nevertheless, there are a handful of work habits and behaviors that are the same amongst the most effective PMs. Below, we’ve highlighted the top five habits that help PMs complete their projects on time, every time.

1. Focus on the Details

Getting to know a project thoroughly before embarking on the journey with a client is critical. This includes reviewing the specifics of what needs to be completed and determining how much time and money must be allocated to fully execute the project.
