Dedicated Client Role. As the Senior Manager, Project Controls, you lead a series of complex, multi-disciplinary projects. You plan requirements with internal customers and guide both initiatives and projects through the entire project and programme lifecycle. This includes oversight of multiple project schedules, identifying risks and maintaining the tools necessary to help identify, assess, plan and mitigate these risks. As an important team member, you clearly communicate goals and objectives and progress against the same to programme stakeholders. The programme in question supports projects spanning offices, time zones and hemi spheres, and it's your job to help keep all players coordinated and up-to-date on the programme's progress and deadlines.
As the Senior Manager, Project Controls, you have responsibility for managing process and tools implementation working with the programme management team to enable standardization across the programme planning, design & construction schedule. You have a deep understanding of construction, its disciplines, methods with particular emphasis on project and programme controls processes. You will drive the successful implementation of programme-wide tools globally. Component elements of the role include the ownership of all tools and processes necessary to measure and monitor controlling project and programme variables and their identified threats, issues and opportunities, including:
1. Planning and Scheduling;
2. Risk Management (includes identification & assessment);
3. Cost estimating and management;
4. Scope and Change Management;
5. Earned Value Management;
6. Document Control;
7. Supplier Performance;
8. Maintaining the project baseline; and
9. Programme and Project Reporting.
You're equally at home explaining the programme teams analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical and financial trade-offs with architects, engineers and contractors.
