An associate project manager helps the project manager in a variety of ways. They often serve as a buffer between the project manager and the rest of the team working on a given project. If something goes wrong in operational activities for a project, the associate project manager is the first person consulted for advice; they identify the problem, offer possible solutions, and decide if the problem needs to be brought to the project manager's attention. Typically, an associate project manage works in their company's main office, although they may need to travel to project sites.
