Key project management responsibilities include creating clear and attainable project objectives, building the project requirements, and managing cost, time, and scope.

Successful project managers are well paid and highly sought after in the construction industry, engineering, architecture, information technology, telecommunication, and many other fields in the production, design and service industries. According to a survey conducted by Computer Economics, a consulting firm, the number of project managers on information technology teams has increased from 2.0% of total staff in 2006 to 4.5% in 2009.

  • Click on the lower outside corner of a page—it will appear to curl up, meaning it’s ready to flip to the next page.
  • Click on the arrow icons located below and to the right of the brochure—when you move your cursor on the arrows, an explanation box will pop up, telling you these icons mean “next page” or “previous page.”

To zoom in on a page, you have two options:

  • Click on the page you’re interested in.
  • Click on the zoom-in icon located below and to the left of the brochure—the icon looks like a magnifying glass with a plus sign in the lens.

To zoom out, there are two more options:

  • Click on the page you’ve zoomed in on.
  • Click on the zoom-out icon below and to the left of the brochure—this icon looks like a magnifying glass with a minus sign in the lens.

A full-screen option is also available—to read the text at its largest size, just click on the icon next to the magnifying glass icon at the lower left of the brochure. When you’re in full-screen mode, please note that Internet hyperlinks in the brochure won’t be live. Normal mode is required for you to use hyperlinks in the brochure text.
