Understanding the difference between a construction manager vs project manager is vital to understanding the work that takes places in the construction industry. Following are the main difference between project manager and construction manager:- The main difference between project managers and construction managers is the scope. Project managers typically are higher up the food chain in an organization and have broader responsibilities. Project managers typically don’t deal with construction workers, equipment, and materials, except to sign off on them. It’s the construction manager’s job to determine what their needs are in those areas, develop a proposal, and submit it to the project manager for approval. Project manager oversees a large portion of the operation, they will have more direct contact with the client, who will want to know how construction is going as well as other things, such as land procurement and site analysis.

Diffence between project appraisal and project monitoring

Yes you can, but there are some philosophical differences between the 2 terms as some think that a Project Leader is just a better Project Manager. The definition of a Project Leader is a Project Manager with great leadership skills.

Each project manager may have one or more project leaders reporting to him. A project leader is someone who leads and manages a small team and ensures that all pieces of work assigned to his team is delivered on time and in quality. He may provide suggestions on the overall project goals but his role or authority is restricted to the chunks of work he is assigned by the project manager. The project manager in turn has multiple leads reporting to him and has to ensure that the work packets delivered by the individual teams are integrated and delivered as one project to the customers.

A project manager needs to understand both to be able to analyze and distinguish the difference and the appropriate time to use either.
