Position Type:Contract
Start Date / End Date: 03/12/2018 to 06/11/2018
Job Description: Manager Feedback:
We are seeking an analyst that has experience conducting an overall review of a major program to determine if the planned outcomes documented in the business case have been met. If candidates have experience conducting Retrospectives in an Agile project, this is a micro-view of a ITproject, and a project’s technical completeness, compared to the overall review of a program (often nonIT) – $XM cost savings, $XM cost efficiencies gained, X,000 new customers identified – for which we need support.

We need candidates who
- have worked on programs or major projects in an analyst and project management capacity and can discuss a project lifecycle, phases, and associated processes/tools
- have experience writing executive-level presentations (in PowerPoint for example) to senior management
- have evidence facilitating meetings and managing diverse stakeholder groups
- have either managed/worked on a program-level PIR, or who can articulate how a PIR should be set-up, implemented, reported-out, and closed

I submitted a PowerPoint document summarizing the Client PIR program. Vendors should ensure their candidates qualify with evidence, or can speak to the elements of the PIR program through relevant experience. PP document attached.
