Delivery Management Consultant
Area of expertise:
Agile Delivery Management Consultant
Do you always deliver what you’ve promised? So do we.
At the heart of every great technology solution is great management, always making sure that the project delivers what it set out to do and matches expectations.
You deliver successful projects because of your focus on day-to-day activities and your ability to anticipate and execute changing needs.
About the role
The lifecycle of an Avanade project runs all the way from planning to sales through to execution and closure, with many stops in between. Working in the Programme and Project Management team, you make sure that they are all delivered on time, on budget and at the highest quality.
You are involved in the sales and estimating phases of each project, as well as in planning, mobilization, execution and closure. You keep stakeholders updated regularly on progress and status, manage risks and issues and monitor financial performance.
Day-to-day, you will:
Develop, implement and maintain a detailed project work plan, including appropriate controls, governance structures and monitoring to ensure on-time, on-budget and quality outcomes
Balance scope, schedule, budget, quality and risks and propose and implement adjustments as necessary
Oversee, report and respond to project issues and risks
Develop and implement change management processes
Grow and maintain good client relationships
Partner with onshore, offshore and near-shore colleagues and guide junior team members
Travel as needed.
You really enjoy working with minimal structure and you think and work systematically and logically, always focusing on the detail and with a customer-oriented attitude. You’re comfortable managing multiple priorities. Your spoken and written communications are always clear, and you have good client interface and management, interpersonal and presentation skills.
Your experience includes:
Working knowledge of at least one software development methodology and Microsoft platform technologies
In-depth knowledge of Microsoft Project and Team Foundation Server (TFS)
Basic knowledge of contract terms and earned value reporting.
You probably have a Bachelor’s degree in Business or a technology-related field. We’d like it if you are a Project Management Institute Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), although it’s not essential. You have at least three years of consulting project management experience and at least one year of management experience.
