An industrial foreman is the worker or tradesman who is in charge of a industrial work crew. While traditionally this role has been assumed by a senior male worker, the title in the modern sense is gender non-specific in intent. Normally the foreman is a blue collar worker with many years of experience in a particular trade who is charged with organizing the overall operation of a particular project or process. Typically the foreman is a person with specialist knowledge of a given trade who has moved into the position and is now focused on an overall management of all trades rather than any particular specialized group.

Foremen are best understood as Project Managers who have come to that position after experience as a construction worker, as opposed to an individual who has followed a professional project management development program
