The Bastian Robotics Project Manager’s (PM’s) normal involvement in the sales cycle generally begins prior to hand-off, as part of the Sales pursuit team. This may involve estimating, solicitation of subcontractor proposals, assistance in presentations, review of proposed contracts, and systems design. As the sales process continues, the PM takes on increasing responsibility for understanding and controlling Bastian’s risk from technical, contractual, and cash flow, and organizational standpoint. Once the order becomes a contract, the PM has sole responsibility for budget, schedule and design. The PM translates the Sales estimate into a budget, scope of work and project plan suitable for entering into Great Plains for booking. For larger projects, and increasingly so as the group grows, the PM’s success will depend increasingly on his or her leadership, communications ability and performance, and ability to manage the details of multiple projects; although technical and problem-solving skills will continue to be important.
