This role will focus on the evaluation of the current agile practices within the Data department and execution of a vision  to strengthen, maintain and find new innovative ways of working.  You will be expected to measure and track the performance of our teams showing incremental improvements over time.  You will need to coach and collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure we have a sustainable framework for managing work and that members of the team are given the tools to efficiently implement this plan by knowing how to run and participate in day to day agile events. You will also be in charge of the creation and delivery of training programs, facilitating our Agile community events, building our Agile and Lean knowledgebase.

In addition to leading our Agile practices, you will be asked to manage assigned projects and initiatives, working to effectively partner with relevant parties to support as a project manager.  Standard activities will include, but not be limited to leading project kick-off and recurring project team meetings, maintaining project schedules and risk registers, creating weekly status reports; communication throughout the entire project and acting as the central liaison for the project. Projects may be technical or business processes in nature.

  • Grow their practices, environment, relationships and mindsets
