The IM Senior Project Manager will be responsible for the collaborative leadership of assigned projects involving interdisciplinary teams. The IM Senior Project Manager will be called upon to initiate planning, execution and completion of a project including appropriate transition requirements to ensure sustainability of the results. The Senior IM Project Manager is responsible for the initiation, planning, execution, control and closure activities of multiple technology and/or program-related multi-phased projects across multiple teams. The position manages the work of the project team, insuring on-time, on-budget completion of the work efforts. The position will interact with all stakeholders affected by the project, including executive/project sponsors, front line staff, operational owners, IM services and vendors. A project that’s significant enough to have a Senior Project Manager assigned to it often involves many different elements. Multiple departments may carry the responsibilities of different assignments, but the Senior Project Manager is responsible for making sure that all departments come together in a timely manner to complete the overall goal. This requires the ability to schedule tasks and coordinate with various team members to accomplish the results. The completed project may require different layers to be performed by different teams. Senior Project Managers are therefore responsible for keeping the projects on track and possessing the ability to foresee the entire project as a whole at all times. The only way that a Senior Project Manager can successfully perform these tasks is through communication. It is very important for Senior Project Managers to communicate frequently with all members that are involved in the project and not make any assumptions. A failure to effectively communicate at any layer of the project could result in missed deadlines, unsatisfactory performance and poor outcomes.
