The mission of the Project Management Team (PMT) is to help City of Tucson departments achieve their strategic goals by implementing the right projects, the right way, to deliver the right business benefits.

Project Managers are professionals with demonstrated success in the project management field, and who have a desire to continue to hone their project management skills. Project Managers work under the direction of the PMT Administrator as part of the Project Management team within the Information Technology Department (ITD). At any given point in time, Project Managers will be working independently or in concert with other Project Managers, ITD staff/management, and various City of Tucson staff/management on single projects or multiple low complexity projects concurrently
ESSENTIAL DUTIES:


Successfully plan and execute projects to achieve intended business benefits
Position the project for success by defining a structured delivery approach based on best practices
Assist City Departments complete "concept papers", "project charters" and other project management documentation
Lay out a clear plan for project execution by developing detailed schedules, defining milestones and deliverables, identifying resource requirements, and coordinating day-to-day activities across resources in a matrixed environment
Create a cadence for diligent management of project financials by forecasting, monitoring, reporting on, and controlling project costs on an ongoing basis
Ensure achievement of the project's intended business benefits remain paramount by applying an appropriate amount of discipline to evaluate changes to the core aspects of the project that are proposed during execution or arise as the result of project conditions (e.g., scope, requirements, timelines, and cost)
Proactively minimize the probability of adverse project conditions by establishing risk and issue management procedures, driving the creation and oversight of mitigation plans, and aggressively resolving conflict where needed
Communicate the right things about the project at the right time in the right way by developing communication plans, tailoring communications to intended audience(s), and delivering information consistently and in an perceptive manner
Provide insight into project health by defining appropriate metrics to measure project performance, comparing actual performance to planned performance on an ongoing basis, identifying root causes of situations that could negatively impact project performance, and preparing and delivering executive-level briefings when needed


Foster relationships across functions and levels of the organization

Establish a reputation for collaboration through openness, empathy, situational awareness, employing an objective approach to decision making, and an awareness of politics without getting mired in them
Remain composed when project progress, workload, or resource allocations are less than ideal and stress can be sensed across project stakeholders
Display resiliency when assignments appear difficult or complex, and when dealing with uncertainty or ambiguity


Enrich the delivery capabilities and overall performance of the PMT

Embody accountability by taking responsibility for individual actions and encouraging others to do the same, and supporting the City of Tucson and ITD business goals and values
Promote unity by demonstrating confidence in self and peers, and placing the success of the team over success of the individual
