Project analysts must be comfortable preparing and presenting new ideas to improve current strategic planning processes while taking into account different scenarios to anticipate any impact they may have on the business. They are also responsible for collecting the information needed for projects using various approaches, such as interviews, statistical data and market trends, or legislation applicable to projects, and analyzing the information collected.
Project analysts must also assess any project for financial and economic feasibility, as well as its investment budget, and are responsible for administrative activities (estimates and cost control) and monitoring the activities set for each project. Although project analysts work on teams, they must be able to coordinate with departments within the company and, in some cases, teams from outside the organization who are contracted for research purposes.
Those in this position may arrange the operational and field tests needed to ensure the safe development and implementation of projects at work, and also prepare and submit reports on projects' progress to their superiors within set deadlines. A bachelor’s degree in business is generally required for this position, though this varies by industry, and some employers may prefer those who have a master's degree and at least two years of experience in the industry.
