Who has the highest position Senior or Lead Project Manager

0 votes

Hi, As I am a newbie on the Project management course and I am confused with both the terms "Senior" or "Lead". What is above a senior project manager?

Do you more often see a Senior Project Manager leading a team of project managers, or, do you more often see a Lead Project Manager leading a team of project managers? Is lead more senior than a manager?

Can anyone enlight me with the above query?

Thanks for any support.

Manager of Project Managers: A senior position, in larger organizations they might be referred to as VP of project management, responsible for overall direction and management of projects.

The title of "Sr." in any professional capacity should be given based on knowledge and years of experience, as opposed to leadership function.

The word “lead” in a job title typically indicates a low-level supervisory position similar to an assistant manager or management trainee. The word “senior,” however, may be given to mid- or upper-level managers handling larger duties within an organization.

I hope you have got the idea regarding your query.
