Project manager

The project manager plans, leads, monitors and reports.

Planning obviously requires the help of the other roles as the project moves beyond the initial phase.

Leading developers and testers can often be delegated to the solution architect and test manager respectively, as can the detailed progress monitoring of those team members.

And of course, the project manager reports directly to the sponsor and/or the steering committee.
