This Hired Guns client, an innovative health organization, is on the hunt for a Program Management superstar to play a key role in a huge, and we mean HUGE website relaunch. The firm is looking for a someone who can synthesize the info coming in from multiple work streams and see around corners to head off issues that will arise two weeks from now. Got a crystal ball built just for project management? Then you’ll succeed at this gig (though the crystal ball should have already shown you that.)
As a Program Manager, you will take on a leadership role across a wide range of key initiatives: driving analysis, scope and planning, building stakeholder consensus and setting expectations, identifying and vetting solutions, and managing communications and training. Your main role will be managing and communicating project risk, connecting the dots between diverse projects, synthesizing all the available information and keeping all participants informed and on track — from the top of the org chart to the bottom.
You will plan, track, and manage all cross-team and multi-functional dependencies, including those with Editorial and Product, and will work with Engineering to identify and track any technical dependencies. Overall, you’ll also be expected to lend your expertise to assisting the program team with capacity planning and optimal resource utilization.
Hired Gun Profile
You’ve earned your stripes leading and running large complex projects and programs from planning, design, and development all the way through to production. You’ve got a strong understanding of various web development methodologies, including Agile/Scrum, and the ability to successfully manage non-technical, business-related programs. It would be great if you have experience within a formal PMO as well.
Bright and positive, you can be counted on to act with the highest integrity and professionalism. You take a creative approach to problem solving, and you encourage your team to do the same. With your deep-seated interest in leading and coordinating programs involving multiple cross-functional teams – Communications, Editorial, IT, Operations – there’s no question you can stay flexible and adaptable.
While this is a well-established company, they are currently undergoing shift in order to create a more innovative environment. Their product development processes need an overhaul, and your experience putting product development planning on an Agile path are going to give you the edge in landing this role.
This is a chance to innovate in a well-known, healthcare organization and get another huge project under your belt. If you love the scene in “Men in Black” where Will Smith plays “which of these things is not like the other,” you’ll do well in this role.
