According to Cambridge dictionary, project is “a piece of planned work or an activity that is finished over a period of time and intended to achieve a particular purpose”. Also, a manager is “ the person who is responsible for managing an organization”. A project manager (or PM) is, therefore, a professional who organizes, plans and executes projects within constraints (e.g. budget, deadlines). Project managers lead teams, define goals, communicate with stakeholders and see projects through to completion.
At People for AI, we have two levels of project managers: expert and local.
- Local Project Manager: Manage the local labeling team and has the expertise in data labeling. It is the person responsible for training and evaluating the annotation team. They are called local PMs because they are in direct contact with our data labelers. A local PM is generally a labeler that has grown and improved its abilities.
- Project Manager Expert: Manage the project as a whole. That is, is responsible for planning, execution, monitoring, is accountable for the project scope, resources, data labeling tools, etc. The PM experts are, usually, more in touch with the client – since they are accountable for the negotiation and scope definition processes.
Apart from our local and expert PMs, we count with data labelers, reviewers and developers at People for AI. Together, we deliver high quality data labeling projects.
