The project manager is responsible for planning and running the project and ensuring its completion.

Depending on the organizational structure, staff may report primarily to the project manager or to a functional manager. According to PMI, the project manager must perform the tasks in the integration management knowledge area. The other knowledge areas can be managed by the project manager or delegated to others. For instance, the cost management processes may be performed by someone from the accounting function.
