Delivery Management

Job Description

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.


About the role


The lifecycle of an Avanade project runs all the way from opportunity and solutioning, through to contract delivery, then eventual closure and operational support.


As the ERP Delivery Lead, you oversee the successful delivery of Microsoft Dynamics 365/ERP projects. This involves everything from planning to executing development projects and programs for both clients and Avanade, ensuring that solutions meet operational, contractual and financial commitments.


You support, monitor and report throughout the phases - sales, estimating, planning, mobilising and executing, right up to closure, ensuring regular communication with stakeholders and clients and monitoring financial performance.


Day to day, you will


  • Balance scope, schedule, budget, quality and risks
  • Develop, implement, and maintain a detailed project schedule to ensure production of on-time, on-budget, quality outputs
  • Report on status and progress of all aspects of the project against the contract
  • Assist client teams to implement change enablement processes
  • Cultivate strong client relationships
  • Manage Avanade staff – both onshore and offshore – as well as sub-contractor staff when required
  • Travel as needed. However due to the current COVID situation, it is expected that services provided will largely be provided remotely (i.e. from home).


About you


You balance a strategic outlook with a practical focus on day-to-day activities and changing needs, and your business knowledge matches your excellent teamwork, planning and communication skills.


You are driven to achieve outcomes – both for your client and for your employer. You enjoy working with structure, although with a level of autonomy, and you think and work systematically and logically - with an attention to the daily detail. You are at home with enterprise technology and your business acumen means you understand what’s involved in bringing a client initiative to successful conclusion.


You probably have a Bachelor degree in Business or IT and a Project Management certification.  You are likely to have some years of experience in the consulting industry.


You’ve got great spoken and written communication skills, and your client-focussed attitude means you’re comfortable presenting to clients.



To be successful in the role, ideally your will have the following skills and experience:


·       Experienced project manager with deep understanding of ERP, someone who can engage with clients and translate their needs into project blueprints, schedules and deliverables.

·       Extensive experience in ERP solutions and the lifecycle of planning, implementing and maintaining such solutions

·       Comprehensive understanding of Agile principles and how ideally should be applied in ERP projects, and have delivered ERP implementations with either iterative or Agile approach. You have worked with one of the application development lifecycle management tools like Azure DevOps or JIRA.

·       Managing project and program financials (e.g., budgeting, assessing financial impact, working with financial analysts).

·       Planning and managing projects and programs that are executed by geographically-dispersed teams

·       Evaluating and managing technology vendors;

·       Contract proposals, negotiations and sales support as well as Microsoft platform technologies and tools
