OVERVIEW

Delivery Management takes projects from planning to delivery - on time, on budget, and on brief. Delivery Management is everyone’s go to place for the project. Clients and internal team members rely on you for everything they need to know about a project: what to expect, what to do next, and where they need to be.

You are the primary client project contact, ensuring project scope is defined, adhered to by both client and team, managing the project plan, whilst providing direction to all members of the project team. You are ultimately responsible for planning and coordinating activities of individual projects to ensure that project goals are accomplished and client needs are met.
