Project coordinators are just a single piece of the large puzzle that makes up netlogx. Just like a puzzle, if one piece is missing, it can’t be considered complete. Project coordinators assist the project manager, business analysts, and client staff. They are responsible for a variety of tasks that keep meetings running smoothly and projects on track, such as:
- Updating checklists
- Maintaining accurate spreadsheets
- Creating agendas
- Reserving meeting locations
- Sending meeting invites
- Thorough note-taking
- So much more
To accomplish these tasks efficiently, a project coordinator must be detail-oriented, meticulously organized, and able to prioritize tasks. All of these skills contribute to risk mitigation as the project coordinator acts as an extra set of eyes to review documents and catch any errors that may have been overlooked.
One of the major responsibilities of a project coordinator is to ensure that all involved follow the project timeline closely. They make sure deadlines are met, and action items are completed promptly. Without this piece of the puzzle, a project can derail quickly. If action items are not being completed that means the project isn’t progressing, leading to periods of stagnancy and eventually an unsuccessful project.
