A general project leader is responsible for developing plans and timelines for prospective projects and delegating work to the project team as needed. This gives the project leader significant authority over members of the project team, which may involve leading discussions on any element of the project, approving prospective project changes, and providing incentives for good performance. Additionally, the general project leader is responsible for ensuring that projects are completed in a timely and consistent manner, staying within company constraints related to budget and risk management. Project leaders report project progress and related financial information to their supervisors on a regular basis.
