Personal Skills

Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo.

You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Being able to identify interdependencies between various projects, programs and portfolios, collaborating with involved stakeholders in order to enhance their assertiveness in achieving related strategic organizational objectives. Implies the ability to influence and negotiate with internal clients with different interests.
  • Being able to positively manage and overcome resistance or break the stalemate between individuals or stakeholder groups in order to minimize the impact on project delivery or to portfolio performance.
  • Being able to promote effective communication of projects, programs and portfolios at various hierarchical levels, considering the depth and the information needed at each point of contact.
  • Being able to plan, organize, assess, and monitor the management of projects, programs and portfolios, in conjunction with project managers, stakeholders, and senior sponsoring management / PMO services clients, promoting the maturity of this competency within the organization. Implies the ability to work in an environment marked by organizational change.
