The implementation coordinator
the project manager's ally
The increasing complexity of information system projects has resulted in the specialization of tasks that were once the sole province of the project manager. The implementation coordinator is one such specialized role and is the person who orchestrates activity, facilitates meetings, and integrates technologies during the implementation phase of a project. While the project manager provides leadership and is ultimately accountable for the project, the implementation coordinator takes care of the unremitting communications issues that crop up, facilitates implementation meetings, and networks groups within the organization. In short, the implementation coordinator is the one who manages the logistics of the implementation.
