  • Resource Management: Working with the 3rd party implementation partner, oversee workstreams teams consisting of solution architects, business analysts and various other technical specialists. Ensure that adequate resources are available for planned discovery, build, implementation, testing, on-boarding and user training. Additionally, work with various 3rd party online platform vendors to enable API integration where applicable
  • Budgetary & Cost Control: Maintain clear and transparent cost control across all areas of the project, delivering regular forecast/spend against budget projection during milestone or exception update meetings
  • Change Management: Develop, deploy and maintain change management register to ensure that the project stays on track for delivery and to prevent scope creep
  • Full software development and implementation lifecycle: Lead through end-to-end fully software development life-cycle (SDLC) and have over a live fully supported system, accepted by the business stakeholders
