Job Designation

Senior Project Manager (SAP Experience) who oversees very large or complex IT initiatives (may include IT applications, infrastructure, IT services, software, etc.).  The main duties include articulating the business case, project planning, resource allocation, and project or program delivery aligned with best practices as well as Meggitt policies and procedures.  [ Note:  throughout this job description, the term “project” may mean a project, a program, or a project with multiple embedded projects.]

While this is a general role and each person in this role is expected to perform this work generally across various functional areas, this particular job is for project management leadership for Engineering or Manufacturing functions.  Much of the work is likely to be associated with projects involving the applications and systems supporting manufacturing, managing application rationalization and remediation, providing IT products and services to manufacturing sites, and integrating engineering and manufacturing systems.  This project may require travel to several Meggitt sites for timely management of assigned projects.

Job Core Responsibilities

     facilitator for constructive meetings related to a project.

•    Guide communications and organizational change.  Since virtually all projects create change, the project manager must be a skillful leader and communicator for effective change.  Work with IT service transition colleagues, user
     representative(s), business process owners, and others to ensure effective change.
