Programme Manager – Change Management

Skills: My client is looking for a Programme Manager to lead the build phase of a large, data-intensive, IT Change Programme that will affect the majority of functions across the structure of this global leader within their field.

I am ideally looking for a demonstrable background in successful delivery of technology focused change programmes, (preferable data-intensive applications) which have been both complex and business critical. A pragmatic approach is required to probe into the level of detail as well as the gravitas to work at board level to ensure the smooth communication and successful rigor is applied to all components across the programme. You will be managing multiple stakeholders; (at times, with conflicting views) within IT, business, vendor / supplier partners (on/off shore) to ensure the consensus and alignment of business objectives and programme deliverables.

A successful and demonstrable background of end to end delivery of technology change programmes is required.
