Manage multiple projects through the Project Management Office's (PMO) evaluation and implementation processes.

Responsible for overall project planning, execution, coordination, control, and completion. Proactively monitor project baselines, providing advance notification and management of deviations/risks as they emerge. Help continuously adapt and evolve the PMO's methodology.


a) Work with key stakeholders to clarify and define project opportunities. Facilitate "business level" discussions with Sponsors to:

6) Deliverables (defining work -- WBS, decomposition, etc.)

7) Team roles and stakeholder management (responsibilities, assignments)

8) Scheduling (estimating, critical path, compression)

e) Work to improve OCIO's ability to deliver client value "department-wide"

? Participate in regular project "lessons learned" & "benefit review exercises. Test new ideas and incorporate best practices into PMO's project methodology.

? Collaborate with others interested in Project Management across the organization to help grow a shared "project culture" and practice.
