Replatforming Program Lead and PMO
The Replatforming program has started since April 2019. A number of technical and testing activities have been launched. Different partners are involved in that large program. The design phase is just completed and the program is entering in the delivery phase. The client is looking for a “very well” organized program lead to coordinate and align the activities of all parties involved in the program.
A number of project managers are already active and all their plans must be consolidated and aligned to insure the delivery.
The program lead will be versatile in the sense that he/she will also take directly in charge a number of program office activities like the creation and communication of program KPIs and dashboards. The program lead will insure the defined governance is well put in place, the different boards are timely organized and prepared. The program lead will prepare the materials for these boards with the support of the different teams. The communication will be adapted to the targeted audience. The program lead will be “extremely” solutions minded, able to create and maintain a ONE team spirit taken into account the different point of views. The program lead will work in close collaboration with the program executive to insure that all parties are delivering following the budget and the plan.
In the Replatforming program, four key technical skills are essential :
Sound foundational knowledge of IT infrastructure and architecture
Sound knowledge of IT testing
Sense of balance between the roles of program lead and technical advisor
Ability to communicate effectively in both technical and non-technical terms
The program lead will be supported by internal resource for the budget aspects and the risks management
