Your new role
This is a brand new role as a project framework will be rolled out to the business units. This will strengthen the interface between IS and the various business units for better identification, scoping, planning and execution of infrastructure, systems or digital projects.
The role will be instrumental in propagating the benefits of project management by demonstrably delivering projects with a measurable ROI on time, in budget and in scope.
