You love a complex challenge and your friends tend to find you a bit too organized and process driven. You are curious, able to gather detailed information from clients easily and can design a program from several possible alternatives. You’ll need the verbal and written dexterity to describe your plans to both team and executive stakeholders. You like when things move in coordination yet can still pivot when needed.
Those program managers who find our type of work a good fit have the following characteristics:
You love projects - the more complex the better.
You enjoy thinking on your feet but you are even better at follow ups
You have the ability to become a trusted advisor through deep knowledge and charm while leading clients to a solution.
You have the ability to balance tensions between competing parties while building consensus toward solving the highest priority problems.
You raise issues quickly instead of sweeping them under the carpet. You are not afraid to ask for help.
You put a high value in collaboration with both the client and your project team and believe transparency is crucial for a successful delivery.
You’ve worked at consulting firms before, successfully delivering their most complex solutions while managing project teams up to 15+.
You are self motivated and break out in hives if things go unfinished.
