You are the go-between the company’s business and technical teams making you the problem-solver and decision-maker at all times. Generally, you work harder than all to ensure all teams remain productive. Managing different teams to bring a product or service to life can turn out to be chaotic. Everyone expects you to not only bit the deadline but also to be as efficient as possible and keep the budget.
