Project Manager

Job Description

Background:

TEKsystems has gotten to a point where the degree of change and evolution in our business requires us to take a step back with our major strategic initiatives and make sure we have clear strategic alignment, clear governance and prioritization, a comprehensive awareness of how changes impact behaviors and ROI, as well as open communication and effective change management.

With those objectives in mind, we are slowly growing and aligning a team of leaders that have comprehensive experience across the enterprise to assist in the broader role of helping manage our Enterprise transformation - this is/will be our Transformation Program Office or TPO.

So, what is the TPO?


It is a group that combines dedicated Project Management resources with aligned Leadership and resources from areas of the company like Communications, Finance, Technology, Marketing, Training, Operations, Sales, Leadership, etc., to form teams that facilitate specific initiatives, projects and programs.

These specific programs - by way of their intended impact - are

Enterprise wide

and need to be supported and governed by consistent, repeatable, documented approaches across multiple operational groups. These approaches provide for consistent communication, metrics and reporting relative to objectives, progress, and outcomes - as well as emphasizing an operating rhythm that mandates the application of feedback and continuous improvement (Agile).

The aggregation and reporting of the TPO's metrics and feedback also informs the long term strategic approach and roadmap for the company's Enterprise transformation efforts.

What the TPO is NOT…


The TPO does not 'own' programs, projects or initiatives. It is a centralized support mechanism. All of the specific programs, projects and initiatives supported by the TPO have Executive owners/champions and accountable leaders/teams that ultimately direct and ensure that the outcomes are achieved.
