Project management success is an interesting scientific subject from management perspective. Hence, numerous studies had been done by prior scholars to explore and identify the important factors for project success from holistic perspective. In addition, prior research also commonly agreed that project manager plays an important role toward project success. However, there is lack of study that particularly focuses on the roles played by project manager toward project success. Hence, this paper reviews the roles of project manager, re-examines the definition of project management from the project manager perspective and reassesses the relationship between project manager and project management success. Finding from this paper suggests that the capability of project manager on project team management, such as project activities planning, project team member skill evaluation and job distribution; knowledge on the application of project management tools and techniques; and how the project manager deals with political and cultural issues are the key elements for project success.
