IT Research Project Manager
Herndon , Virginia
November 15, 2016
This PM will be in an extremely dynamic and fast paced environment to deliver on multiple projects. This PM will report directly to the Head of Infrastructure and Operations of our client and work alongside as his direct report, and the client assigned to leading this initiative. The project will consist of collecting data through multiple avenues (email, phone, VoIP, word of mouth), entering it into a database, cleaning it (making it anonymous), and then processing it in Europe to generate views in social networks. The goal will be to leverage the processed data to drive efficiencies and identify the effectiveness of communication in the workplace. A small example would be to compare the volume of discussion around a specific topic and compare it to targeted business objectives/outcomes/challenges.

Below outlines the basic PM requirements and additional information. Here is what we identified directly from the manager that he will be looking for in this resource. At the highest level this resource must be able to make order out of chaos.
  • SME in Scrum methodology - day to day changes to be expected.

  • This PM will be entering a world of chaos that is going to demand the highest level of intelligence, flexibility, and adaptability.
