Key Jobs (Positions) in IT Consulting Part (5)

Manager/Engagement Manager/ Project Leader/Associate Principal

After a few years, a senior consultant will move up to manager or an equivalent role with a different title. Regardless of the firm-specific nomenclature, the next rung on the ladder usually involves leading a team of consultants and analysts toward project completion, managing day-to-day project activities, providing thought leadership, and assuming primary accountability for project results.

Some firms might hire MBAs with significant work experience directly into the manager position, particularly in their IT practices. In addition to having more rigorous responsibilities for managing the project team, the manager will typically act as the primary point person for client interactions.
