October 2014 – August 2015– Programme/Project Manager
Hays Productions Services team were embarking on a new programme to deliver Office 365 globally. They did not/do not have a programme/project management core and required myself to build up structure and process that would allow them to deliver this programme effectively but also have a long-term future process.
Build a programme structure and governance to provide the global delivery
Define processes for the team to deliver future programmes/projects.
Chair Programme and Steering Committee meetings at Director level
Manage Initial deliveries for each project/workstream
Work with number 3rd party suppliers to deliver knowledge, Infrastructure and Integration points
Manage the IT and Business teams through the Implementations and initial testing
This role has now completed albeit the Programme continues. This was a short-term role to enable the programme. I have now moved into a different role within the company as a project Portfolio Manager and have picked up several projects. I have closed several these projects either through successful completion or recognising they are no longer viable and continue to pick up new projects as bandwidth allows.
