Provide essential business input for a new commercial landscape

This is a high-level role in which you work as a consultant to the Commercial business so that they seamlessly support operational excellence and customer engagement objectives and fit within the overall program priorities and timeframes.

Within this context, your detailed activities include:

  • Defining business requirements, rationales and benefits with key stakeholders and acting as a bridge between the business and IT in projects that require system implementation;
  • Creating robust and professional documentation to engage stakeholders and accurately convey business requirements;
  • Ensuring that the PM has all the required business inputs in line with the agreed program milestones;
  • Providing/coordinating the business input for TO-BE processes, identifying any gaps from the AS-IS;
  • Discuss and agree on trial and implementation plans with the business and PM that fit with the overall objectives and timelines of the program;
  • Identifying SMART KPIs and metrics.

At all times you engage and collaborate with a broad range of business colleagues and leaders across functions and locations to ensure that initiatives are implemented effectively in all business units with clear business accountabilities. You also coach/train the business on new techniques and processes and facilitate knowledge sharing.
