Why Use a Contract Project Manager

Many organizations don’t initiate the volume of projects to employ a full time Project Manager, at least not long term. Larger organizations with continuous project work often augment their PM workforce with contractors. The contractor PM serves four purposes for them.
1. First the obvious, they fulfill a pressing labor force need.
2. Second, PMs on contract avoid the disruptive painful process of layoffs.
3. Thirdly contractors provide an influx of new ideas and an opportunity to drive before you buy future full time staff.
4. In house PMs may not have specific skill sets or experience in a particular area.
