The Senior Project Manager (Sr. PM) is responsible for the successful analysis, initiation, planning, execution, monitor & control, and closeout of programs and projects as assigned by the Director, PMO or their designee.  The Sr. PM will oversee the IS PMO's most complex projects, which will likely involve a diverse set of components, including healthcare processes, clinical applications & interfaces, business / administrative applications & interfaces, enabling / supporting technology and infrastructure (e.g., hardware, devices, telecom, storage solutions).

The successful Sr. PM must be proficient in managing the complexities associated with large, enterprise-wide strategic initiatives, and be able to communicate effectively with executive-level personnel, verbally and in writing.  The successful Sr. PM will exhibit strong project planning abilities across the core project management knowledge areas as defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI), and have robust prior experience justifying and planning projects, to include defining and baselining project scopes (via charters, scope statements, work breakdown structures, statements of work), schedules, budgets, communications plans, and resource allocations. The successful Sr. PM will also exhibit strong project execution & closeout abilities and be comfortable assuming – and course correcting – in flight projects.
