  • Meet with internal and external executive stakeholders to communicate the process and needs of core projects and more critically, negotiate trade-off decisions in the formation of quarterly and monthly roadmaps
  • Flag risks and issues early, to create visibility and transparency between our teams and articulate solutions that will keep the organization moving forward
  • Report on overall program roadmap progression, budget status and risks to internal and external leadership teams
