Agile Transformation Leader


Description


As an organizational expert in Agile processes, the Agile Transformation Leader will be heading up these efforts for one of our large financial firms who will be undergoing some really big changes to their entire work environment with new initiatives starting early 2018. They are implementing a 5-year program consisting various projects, which includes the complete transformation of their current work environment (no real structure) to a fully-functioning agile environment. In order to successfully achieve this, they'll be adding an Agile Transformation Leader to their team to help them change their processes and culture as a whole. Historically, this client has dealt with very little change to their organization/culture, so the biggest challenge for this person is going to not only be updating the outdated ways of their past but also making the necessary organizational/cultural adjustments that will be required. Decision-making and negotiation skills will be a heavy focus in this role, as this person will need to be comfortable interfacing with senior management and executives on a daily basis. This will be considered a very high-profile position and will be reporting to both the technology and business sides of the company in order to aid in the efforts of a successful transformation.
